The IT Co-op is an integral component of the Information Technology Diploma program with Co-op as it provides students with essential real-world work experience in a Canadian English-speaking business environment. The Co-op is designed to provide the students with two semesters of solid studies in their initial entry into the college. This is to effectively arm them with soft skill tools necessary for a quality twelve months (1000 Hours) Co-op with a Canadian organization.
Completing the initial first Co-op after six months (500 Hours) will allow the students to return to the college for the next Semester (250 Hours) of study before they enter their next six month (2nd) Co-op Term (500 Hours) prior to returning for their Final semester (250 Hours) of study, graduating and returning to their home countries armed with the necessary tools and training they need for their future careers.
As students return to their home country, the combination of a Western Canadian Diploma and Co-op is not only a competitive advantage but also allows students the opportunity to understand and experience the cultural and business nuances that can only be gained from a prolonged hands-on experience. This program was designed to provide students with effective management working skills that are necessary for the 21st-century workplace.
