Waterloo Experience (WE) Accelerate: Virtual Information Day

Two people chatting in the waiting area at the Tatham Centre

We've teamed up with industry collaborators to offer an innovative option for undergraduate co-op students entering their first work term: our Waterloo Experience (WE) Accelerate program!

Learn about this optional program by tuning in to our Virtual Information Day. A student panel discussion will be held with past participants and current team leads. You'll find out how their WE Accelerate experience benefitted them in the following work terms. 

The virtual event will also feature a general program information session. Each session is 30 minutes long and will include time for a Q&A period at the end. We'll record the sessions and make the recording available afterwards.
