Co-operative Term 1A/B
This course introduces students to work-study placements in various industries in and around Northern Ontario, and further afield if necessary. This first co-op term is intended to expose architecture students to industry internships, from mining to fabrication to friendship centers. The goal is to develop skills in the work-place as part of the professional practice co-op model. The paid work-study internship is for a period of 13 weeks, with an employer/student report to be submitted at the end of the term. Internship preparation, interviews and placements are guided by the Co-op coordinator, but employment is ultimately the responsibility of each student. French speaking students are placed within French office environments wherever possible. Students are required to complete Co-operative Term 1A or 1B before being eligible to register for third year ARCH courses.
