Want to work on an open-source project with other students from across the country—for credit? UCOSP gives you this opportunity.
What’s in it for me?
- Experience: learn about open source software development and how to work together with a team that’s geographically distributed.
- Credit: Given to to you by your home university, typically as part of a capstone course.
- A chance to meet and work with students from all across Canada.
- A job? UCOSP puts you in contact with many people in the software industry, many of whom might be able to hire you.
What projects can I work on?
Have a look at the Projects page.
I’m on co-op (or a part-time student). Can I still apply?
Unfortunately, we are only able to accept full-time students who are not currently on a co-op term into the UCOSP program.
How much time will this take up?
About the same as any other course: 8-10 hours / week.
This sounds cool! How do I apply?
We ask that you get in touch with your UCOSP faculty contact. If you don’t know who this, email the steering committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
