The Faculty of Architecture at the University of Manitoba is pleased to announce that its Cooperative Education program is now fully approved and moving ahead. Job placements will begin May 2018. The Faculty of Architecture Co-op Program is open to Undergraduate (ED3/4, AMP 1/2) and Graduate students from all disciplines (Architecture, City Planning, Interior Design, and Landscape Architecture).
The Faculty of Architecture Co-op program will meet the Manitoba Government definition of a Co-op program, making employers of Faculty of Architecture Co-op students eligible for the Manitoba Paid Work Experience Tax Credit. This means that employers who hire a student as part of a registered co-operative education program can claim 15% of wages and salaries, up to a maximum of $5,000 per student.
