Co-operative Internship in Computer Science
The Co-operative Internship in Computer Science (CICS), formerly Computer Industry Internship Option (CIIO), is a collaborative effort between the Department of Computer Science, the co-operative education office for the Faculty of Science, and local, national and international
Employers from many sectors hire computer science interns, from small local
tech companies to large multinational companies to government departments.
CICS students complete full-time, paid practical work experiences in an
internship of either 8, 12 or 16 months, typically between the third and fourth
years of the academic program. The longer work period allows students to
become fully productive members of the organization.
