Co-op Programs

Computer Science

The Computer Science Co-op program at Heritage College is a three-year, career program designed to train students to become information systems professionals in business, industry and the public sector. The program was founded in 1981 and the Co-op option has been available since 1997.

The objective of the Computer Science program is to educate the student to become an entry-level programmer/analyst who is able to develop, implement and maintain information systems in stand-alone and networked (including web-based) environments on a range of current platforms using modern tools and technologies. A strong academic and practical curriculum encourages lifelong learning.

Computer Science offers both first and second year co-op placements during the summer work term. Third year students may also be available to work one day per week during the fall and winter work terms.

Students who participate in a co-op work term are able to work with a variety of languages, tools, techniques, and environments.
