Salaries

The figures below indicate average salaries paid to UNB Computer Science Co-op students from January - December 2017.  

Undergraduate students require 4 four-month work terms to complete the co-op program whereas Masters students require 2 four-month work terms.



It is the policy that the Faculty of Computer Science does not discuss one employer's salaries with another so no employer-specific details are given here or elsewhere. It is recognized that each employer will have their own salary scale. As expected, salaries in Maritime cities were lower than those in Ontario.

Work Term W1 W2 W3 W4 W5 W6
Undergraduate Salaries 15.50 16.50 18.00 19.00 20.00 21.00
Masters Salaries 18.00 19.00 20.00

It should be remembered that UNB students in some circumstances will undoubtedly require salaries higher than the average. Students are advised to consider many factors along with salary in judging the attractiveness of jobs; these factors will include: location, nature of work, skills required, exposure to advanced technology, dress codes, living accommodations, opportunity to travel, personal career development and other relevant topics. Clearly there will be justifiable reasons for specific salaries to be appreciably higher (or lower) than the average.
