WT1185 - 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.  Work terms must be program relevant, and 15 weeks in duration.  Participation in the work term is determined through a competitive process and successful completion of all courses prior to the work term is mandatory for work term eligibility.
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.
