The University of Winnipeg Co-operative Education Program offers students the chance to gain full-time, meaningful, and paid employment options while they attend their academic studies.  These opportunities allow students to gain valuable hands-on work experience directly related to their area of study.  The Co-op Program is open to the Faculty of Business and Economic students and the Department of Applied Computer Science students.

This work experience helps University of Winnipeg Co-op students learn about industries and organizations in their community and beyond; relate more closely with theoretical classroom knowledge, and test-drive their career.

Deadlines for students to join the Co-op Program are as follows:

October 1, 2018 - Summer (May - August 2019) work term (COOP I, II, or III)

July 1, 2018 - Fall (September - December 2018) work term (COOP II and COOP III only)

October 1, 2018 - Winter (January - April 2019) work term (COOP II and COOP III only)
