100 per cent placement in Carleton’s co-op programs

In 2006 Carleton’s co-operative education program successfully placed more than 1,000 students with approximately 500 participating employers. This fall, 100 per cent of the students were placed in co-op situations. More than 2,500 students are enrolled in the program which is designed to facilitate experiential learning for students to bring the “real” work world into the classroom. Placements typically take place over four to 16 months and co-op education is available in more than 55 undergraduate academic programs. Participation continues to grow at the graduate level.
