The first semester will provide you with the fundamentals required in both regulatory affairs and quality operations. Introductory level courses equip you for the co–operative work–term placement, which occurs between semesters and gives you the opportunity to apply the knowledge learned in the first semester. Your work–term provides you with valuable industry exposure. The second semester will provide more detailed and specific exposure to the areas of regulatory affairs and quality operations.

The co-operative education component provides you with the opportunity to secure a paid work term between academic semesters. Job-related employment enables you to combine classroom skills and on-the-job training.
