The Co-op Office is always available for support whether students are participating in an academic term or a work term. If problems arise, students must make them known to the Co-op Office. We can be reached via email, telephone, or in person.
The Co-op Office will only send email to students via their "myumanitoba.ca" accounts. UNIX accounts must remain active at all times.
Site visits are conducted by the Co-op Coordinator approximately halfway through each work term. The purpose of site visits varies slightly depending upon which work term it is, but in general they are an opportunity for the Co-op Office to:
- monitor site conditions
- receive comments from industry
- review current standards and developments
- build relationships with both employers and students
Each site visit will be comprised of two interviews. The first interview will be with the employer, student, and Co-op Coordinator. A private interview will then take place between the student and the Co-op Coordinator. An interview with the employer and Co-op Coordinator will be arranged if requested.
Work Term Reporting Requirements
Students are required to submit Work Term Reports at the completion of each work term. In addition, Work Term II and III students must develop and submit learning objectives. Learning objectives must be recorded at the beginning of the work term and updated during the work term.
Work Term Reports and objectives are submitted via web forms that are available in the Web Forms tool of this site for all registered co-op students.
These web form submissions are required prior to the Co-op Office submitting pass or fail grades for the work term.
