Honours Physics and High Technology: Co-op Option
The Co-operative Education Program offers students the opportunity to combine their classroom experiences with related work experiences. Students who apply and are accepted to the Co-operative Education Program must successfully complete three paid work experiences interspersed throughout the four-year Honours program. The experience gained while participating in theses structured and supervised work placements is viewed as an integral component of the student's educational program.
Physics and High Technology Co-op students must maintain full-time academic status and satisfy the following:
(a) Must maintain a minimum cumulative average of 6.0, and;
(b) Must maintain a minimum major average of 8.0, and;
(c) Must not have more than one outstanding F on their transcript.
