Average salaries for co-op students

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 16.50 17.50 19.00 20.00 21.00 22.00
