Internships and co-ops
UOIT students in a range of programs have opportunities to apply their knowledge and skills in real-world settings. Within certain faculties, that experience is acquired through participation in optional internships and co-ops.
Although the terms internship and co-op can have different meanings in different settings, and even vary from faculty to faculty, there are some commonalities. Internship and co-op refer to paid work-term opportunities for full-time undergraduate students in work environments that offer experience related to students' academic studies.
