To further develop skills in time and project management as well as communications, students are required to complete a work report that is evaluated by the university. The report generally comprises of a project selected by the student in conjunction with the employer and approved by the Co-op office. The work report usually involves the analysis of a practical, work related issue. The use of employer facilities and the allocation of time to the student for the report is at the employer's discretion. Specific steps can be taken to protect confidentiality where required.
