Learn about co-op work terms

UVic’s co-op program lets students alternate in-class terms with paid-work terms, where they hold jobs related to their field of study. Our engineering programs include an integrated co-op component. Computer science students also have the option of participating in co-op and many take advantage of our co-op professionals’ guidance and training. Since COVID-19 restrictions came into effect, our co-op office has been working with employers to create new opportunities for the changing work environment, such as helping co-op students prepare to work remotely.
