“What I love about being a Lakehead-Georgian student is being able to learn from and network with professionals in the computer science industry. My experience with the program’s courses and the Computer Science co-op program has put me in touch with many knowledgeable professors, business leaders, and software developers.

Through the co-op program [I’ve been able] to connect with business leaders and programmers throughout different industries. I have had the pleasure of personally meeting and collaborating with leaders in large-scale businesses in the hospitality, video editing, interior design, and transportation industry.”
