Co-operative Education Program at Seneca College Canada




This is a co-operative education program that integrates academic study in the areas of Environmental (EV) Resource Managementand Landscaping (L)with a semester of paid work experience in government organizations and/or privatecompanies. The focus of study encompasses the entire ecosystem with special emphasis given to practical training and technical knowledge to prepare graduates with a diverse range of skills. Many of the subjects in the curriculum utilize the beautiful natural environment of King Campus (280 hectares) or off-campus sites to provide practical training in the out-of-doors.



For those individuals interested in owning their own company some day or in preparing for a future management position, specific training is provided in park and small business management. 


Our graduates have had great success in finding employment and advancing in their careers because of the broad range of skills they can offer and the practical experience they acquire through their 16 week (minimum) co-op work term. The students receive job search training, employer contacts, and are introduced to employment opportunities throughout the program. Our diversified curriculum, which combines traditional landscaping, horticulture and park management with environmental resource management training, has positioned our graduates to meet the changing labour market.
