Student Testimonial

“Co-op gave me a first-hand idea of what courses are relevant in my field today and how much and what kind of education I need to achieve my career goals. It helped me to explore on a deeper level my career choice and it opened a wider variety of career opportunities. Ultimately, it gave me the opportunity to practice what was learned in the classroom in a real world setting, allowing me to identify personal and professional strengths and weaknesses for me to work on in the future.” - Roman - Computer Information Systems Co-op student
