Are you an employer interested in hosting a senior UFV student or grad in the Coding Bridging program? This is a 5-week program where senior Computer Information Systems and Computer Science students and grads do a deep dive into many areas of computer science and get up to speed with the latest and greatest in software technologies and practices.
Students gain practical real-world experience with a local employer working on a coding project and UFV benefits with tighter relationships with local employers. Employers like you benefit by pushing a project forward with a motivated student that could be a candidate for future full-time hire, all at no cost to you except time.
Students are at the work site two days a week (Thur-Fri) for four weeks plus a full five days on the fifth week. Students must complete a minimum of 7 hours of work a day with the employer, for a total of 91 hours (13 days). The other days of the week students are in class for an intense program that brushes them up on the latest software development technologies. For a full list of the learning outcomes, please refer to the program information page.
Desk space and potentially a computer will need to be provided—though having the student bring a laptop is an option.
We do our best to match students with employers based on skills and the projects available, but students will not always know the exact preferred languages and platforms of the employer. If you have further questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 604-851-6324.
