Co-Op Education

Requirements for a University System to Manage Co-Op Programs

The co-op system works as follows. Employers contact the university and list potential jobs. Each job has a description, employer, location, start and end date, and a list of programs (e.g. SEG, CSI, MCG) for which it is applicable.

Each student in the system has a name, student number, list of available time slots (when they are not in courses, or not doing interviews), resume and transcript.

Students in various programs apply for jobs. Students choose a set of jobs they are interested in. The system shows the list of interested students to employers, and employers pick a set of students to interview. The system sets interview times that match the employee’s and student’s availability (set of available time slots).

At the end of the process, the system arranges for the employer to offer each job to a student. If the first student does not accept, the system arranges for other students (the employer’s second, third choices, etc. ) to be offered the job
