The University of Manitoba’s Computer Science Co-op program has become a key part of our hiring strategy. From day one, we bring students on to our projects and surround them with full-time staff. Time and time again, these students prove themselves to be exceptionally fast learners and high performers who bring new ideas and techniques to the job that are barely on the industry radar. We would recommend the co-op program to any company looking to grow their software development team.
