Many of the programmers within the Faculty follow the cooperative education model, where classroom learning and practicals are complemented by structured, real-life experiential learning (work integrated learning) occurring in an industry workplace.
Our industry partners are a valuable component in the education process. Companies benefit by being able to assess the student in a world of work situation (thus leading to better informed recruitment decisions). Many industry partners contribute to curriculum design, resulting in an up-to-date and relevant syllabus and strengthening the ties between the world of work and higher education. Students benefit by being afforded the opportunity to integrate theory learned with actual practice, thus adding not only technical skills but also soft-skills to their competence base.
