Computer Undergraduate Professional Experience

Why do co-op?

The computer engineering program offers paid, full-time co-operative internship opportunities. Our students and alumni can’t say enough about how taking part in co-op transformed their education, their careers and their lives. It’s no surprise. Studies have shown that the benefits of co-op are vast, including opportunities to: 

  • Develop crucial skills such as communication, teamwork and leadership.
  • Experience first-hand exactly what engineering employers expect.
  • Broaden your professional network and make lasting industry connections.
  • Gain an edge in today’s competitive job market.

As part of your studies, you’ll have the opportunity to work for leading companies in telecommunications, multimedia and energy, such as AMD, IBM and Communications & Power Industries – building your network and your confidence along the way.
