Physics & Computer Science
Professional Experience Program available to Computer Science students
The Professional Experience Program (PEP), originally restricted to Computing & Computer Electronics students, is now available to Computer Science students.
All full-time honours students in the Computer Science program may apply for the Professional Experience Program (PEP). Admission to this limited-enrolment option is competitive and is based on academic record, recent work and volunteer experience, extracurricular activities and interview performance. PEP students complete one 12 to 16 month work term after their third year of study. The extended continuous work term allows Professional Experience Program participants to engage in a project of reasonable complexity and see it to completion.
Co-op normally has a number of companies who are interested in PEP students. Application to the program starts in October.
See Professional Experience Program (PEP) for program information from the Co-op office.
