MSc with Co-op Option

In response to strong market demand, students’ interest, and the success of the pilot Co-op program held in Summer/Fall 2008 and Winter 2009, the School of Computer Science at the University of Windsor proposes a Co-op option for its current M.Sc. program in Computer Science. Students pursuing this option are anticipated to gain practical knowledge of the state-of-the-art technologies of software development by working in software companies in Canada and abroad. Some examples of companies hiring our M.Sc. Co-op students include IBM, RIM, among other top high-tech companies.

The Co-op option enables graduate students in Computer Science to gain hands-on experience by working on different aspects of computer software systems in actual work environments, while maintaining the standards of the current research-based existing M.Sc. program. The addition of Co-op education helps students achieve the goals of enhanced academic studies, improved technical skills, and stronger career development. The work experience also helps students develop standards of practice adhering to computing professional ethics. The School of Computer Science and the Student Success Centre at the University of Windsor work closely with students to ensure that the Co-op education achieves its goal of enhancing academic learning with valuable industrial experience.

Additional information on Co-op, Career and Employment Services can be found on the CCES website.
