Additional Degree Requirements
The Graduate Co-op Option is a structured Internship program offered through the Institute for Co-operative Education. Students registered in the Master of Applied Computer Science (MApCompSc) program with the Gina Cody School (GCS) are eligible to apply to the Co-op Option. For the general guidelines, please refer to the Institute of Co-operative Education.
Admission Criteria. In addition to the general requirements for entrance into the Institute for Co-operative Education, the GCS has these additional requirements:
- Students apply to the Graduate Co-op Option in the first year of their academic program.
- Students must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or better throughout their studies.
- This academic program may have a higher GPA requirement and/or additional admission requirements.
Internship Credits. To earn academic credits for their Co-op work term, students must be registered in ENCS 6931 and successfully complete all the academic requirements for this course.
Programming Competency: The programming competency of students is assessed on the basis of computer-based tests, administered in the core course COMP 6481.
Program of Study. The student, in consultation with faculty, must plan an individual program of study approved by the department graduate studies committee.
Credits. Additional credits may be required in some cases.
Completion. Normally a full-time student will require six terms to complete the degree requirements.
Transfer Credits. A student may be granted credit for, in general, not more than 12 credits taken in approved graduate studies prior to his or her entry into this program. A course submitted for transfer credit must be appropriate to the student’s program of study at Concordia University. An application for such credit will be considered only at the time of admission.
Cross-Registration. A student in the program wishing to take courses under the cross-registration scheme outlined in the graduate calendar must first obtain permission of the graduate program director.
Projects. Students may choose to do a project as part of their program. They do so by registering for COMP 6971. Students may also choose to extend their project work from COMP 6971 by registering for COMP 6981.
