Communications skills are increasingly recognized as integral to successful academic and work careers in the field of computer science (see ComputerWeekly.com's 2011 article surveying recent UK grads on their perception of the significance of clear communication in the workplace). In addition to your technical expertise, you will draw on your ability to communicate through speech and writing in numerous situations every day: while working with colleagues individually and in teams; consulting and problem-solving with clients; and sharing your research and innovations.
The Faculty of Computer Science offers students co-op work terms. The academic component of the work terms is a work term report. Students can follow the departmental guidelines offered on the following website. Please note that there is also an online workshop archived in the Access My Dal (BLS) site.
