WT1190 - Work Term
The work term is a required portion of the program. The work term provides a unique learning experience in a real work place setting. The College will attempt to find a suitable work term placement for the student; however, if the College cannot find a suitable work placement, it is the responsibility of the student to find a suitable work placement. This work term follows the successful completion of the preceding academic term. For most students, it represents their first professional work experience in a business environment, and as such represents their first opportunity to evaluate their choice of pursuing a career in information technology. Students are expected to learn, develop, and demonstrate the high standards of behaviour and performance normally expected in the work environment. During the on-the-job experience students develop their employability and technical skills, further enhancing their personal growth. Through the work term students will experience different business cultures (e.g., public, private, and not-for-profit sector, small and large organizations, etc.). They are learning from the new network of contacts and widening their perception of life and career choices.
