UPEI co-op programs earn national accreditation

March 22, 2012

The Canadian Association for Co-operative Education has accredited the University of Prince Edward Island's co-op programs in Business Administration and Computer Science. The 6-month accreditation process entailed an in-depth review of UPEI Co-operative Education policies and procedures by an external review team, which consists of practitioners from UBC, Dal, uWaterloo, UNB, and NIC. UPEI president Alaa Abd-El-Aziz says the accreditation is "an endorsement of UPEI’s commitment to high standards in academic programming and is great news for both our students and our partners in the employer community."
