The Faculty of Architecture Cooperative Education/Integrated Work Program Option (Co-op/I) is designed to complement and enrich academic programs with work experience. The work terms provide students with practical experience, assistance in financing their education, and guidance for future career specialization.
The Co-op/I program is a non-compulsory option. Credits earned through the Co-op/I program do not exempt students from any degree requirement and are in addition to the degree requirements of each student’s program. Students will typically participate in four-month summer placements only. Eight and twelve-month work term opportunities will be assessed on a case-by-case basis for their impact on the student’s academic program. ED4 students who successfully secure a summer Co-op/I work placement are required to defer their graduation to October.
The submission of a written report and portfolio covering the work completed is required for each professional assignment. Each successfully completed work term and its corresponding report receives a Pass/Fail grade and is rated at one credit hour. Students completing consecutive work terms must complete a separate report for each term. Credit hours earned for participation in Co-op/I will not take the place of other program requirements.
Admittance to the program does not guarantee a job. Work placements are dependent on availability. Employers will make the final decision about job offers. Students are not obliged to accept any offer.
