I completed all my 16 months of co-op at Research in Motion with the Quality Database Systems team. My experience was simply amazing and I gained a large number of skills (both personal and professional), learned about some very amazing technologies and had the opportunity to interact with very bright individuals. Thanks to an excellent manager, my projects were extremely diverse, giving my the opportunity to do all kinds of work from developing web-applications from scratch and troubleshooting interesting code to learning advanced SQL optimization techniques.

The co-op student we employed from the University of Guelph-Humber came to NVP Software Testing and took on 2 projects that had been delayed several times (a resource allocation system and a resume database storage system) and pushed them to successful completion using current technology and design techniques. He also took on the testing of a major project that was ongoing at the time./p>

Over the duration of the Computing program, several hundred students graduated and went on to successful careers. Many secured gainful employment in a wide variety of positions that utilized their acquired skills and education from university, while others pursued studies at graduate levels. A major part of their success at the university can be attributed toa number of factors: modern and well-equipped labs, highly-qualified teachers, the comfortable and caring environment at the University, and the co-op experience which allowed students to obtain work experiences with a variety of related companies in computing and/or telecommunications. These opportunities enhanced their educational experience and assisted them in networking with prospective future employers.
