The Computer Information Systems diploma is offered with a Co-operative Education option. Co-operative Education gives a student the opportunity to apply the skills gained during academic study in paid, practical work experience semesters. Students can complete two work semesters while completing their diploma. Work terms generally occur full-time in separate 4 month work semesters and alternate with academic study.
CISY Co-op students have been employed with a variety of industries such as the federal and provincial governments, municipalities, private businesses, and non-profit organizations. Some of the positions students have worked in include:
- Network Administration
- Systems and User Support
- Database Design and Management
- Systems Analysis and Design
- Software Development
- Web Page Development
Students are now eligible for co-op if their program shows “Business Undeclared – Computer Information Systems Intended.” You do not need to be declared into the diploma to be eligible. If you are declared, you are still eligible. However you must still maintain the entrance requirements of the program at all times.
