Each student is encouraged to gain a minimum of two summer's work experience (Coops) in his/her sub discipline of geomatics before graduation.

Work experience gained before graduation will provide a higher paying job because employers will typically reward the student for being able to produce products immediately upon hire.
Graduates find numerous job options upon their graduation.
