The 14-week industry practicum provides students with an opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge from the classroom in an industry setting. Students will start in class to further develop their abilities to complete a successful practicum, including workplace culture and etiquette. Students will work with program faculty and approved prospective placement sites to apply for a practicum assignment that best meets their personal learning and career development goals. During the practicum assignment students will further develop their programming skills, develop their capacity to communicate effectively in the workplace and begin to build a network of key industry contacts that can help them with their goal of securing permanent employment in the technology sector. Students will meet with faculty regularly to go over their projects for troubleshooting and guidance. Finally, students will showcase their projects at an event where the industry partners will be invited.
