Co-operative Education

Welcome to Co-operative Education!

Co-operative Education at KPU works with employers to develop and create program related work experiences for students in distinct disciplines. By alternating between study and work semesters, Co-op helps students apply their skills and knowledge acquired from their on-campus courses to real life work experiences.

Students enrolling in the Co-op program benefit in many ways: they gain practical work experience while earning a competitive wage; they sample various industries within their chosen career; and they obtain valuable soft skills and job search techniques to support their success in securing a job before and after completing their program.


The Centre for Co-operative Education and Career Services is located in the Surrey Main room 136. Please click here for the location map.
