Welcome to University of Manitoba
Computer Science Co-op

Computer Science hosts one of the largest Co-op Programs at the University of Manitoba with an average of 150 placements per year. Our program revolves around three four-month work terms per year where students are employed by companies and government departments across Canada.

The majority of our Co-op students are in 3rd or 4th year of a four year Honours or Majors Computer Science Degree Program. We also provide the Co-op option for students enrolled in the following joint Honours programs with Computer Science: Mathematics, Physics and Astronomy, and Statistics. We have recently added the Co-op option to our Computer Science Coursework Master's Program.
 
Our site contains information for current and prospective employers and students as well as general information if you are just curious about our program.
 
We are pleased to provide links to the employers who support our program on our History of Employers page.

We hope you will find our site informative and easy to use. Questions and comments are welcome. Contact information is provided at the bottom of each page.
