About the Co-Operative Education Project

The Co-operative Education Project (CEP) is a work integrated learning programme and a major feature of: the Bachelor of Applied Management (BAM), Business Graduate Diplomas, Bachelor of Applied Information Technology, and Post-Graduate Applied Information Technology programmes. 

The Co-operative Education Project is a three way partnership between the student, the workplace and Wintec. The purpose is to provide students with the opportunity to experience hands-on the complexities of a working environment.

The Co-operative Education Project consist of two types of placements – a work placement (internship) or an industry project:

A work placement will allow students to become part of a functioning, operational team, and be exposed to the enjoyment and challenges inherent in a real world working environment.

In a research project students will apply their theoretical knowledge to a work place problem or issue. The research project is determined by the host organisation and is directly related to the major the student is studying.

The work placement and the research project allow students the time, place and support to integrate theoretical and practical learning. Students are supported by an Academic Supervisor at Wintec who will provide guidance during their CEP experience and a supervisor from the host organisation who will assess the work placement.
