Co-operative Education is your link between the classroom and the world of work. Our program helps you put your learning to work by alternating full-time academic terms with full-time, paid work terms. We set you up for success with relevant seminars, courses, coaching and advising.
Co-op students graduate with the kind of practical experience that today's employers are seeking – a combination of academic and real-world work experience, research knowledge and business acumen.

Industrial Experience Programs
The Industrial Experience Program is a paid, 12- to 16-week work experience relevant to your program, credited by Concordia University. Unlike the full co-op program, you typically only participate in one work-term during the course of your study.
