After you have completed eight courses, you can choose to complement your associate degree with a work term. Find out more by contacting Co-operative Education and Career Services.

Adding work integrated learning such as an internship or co-op increases your chances of getting better employment when you graduate. A University of Waterloo study showed that students who integrate a work term into their academic program are more likely to get great jobs in their field when they graduate. Learn more.
