Le Cégep de Shawinigan, Québec, Canada.

From an agreement between the IUT of Computer Science of Nice and the Cegep of Shawinigan (town located half way from Montreal to Québec), I carried out the second semester of my DUT second year between the Cegep of Shawinigan and the Customer Help Center of Shawinigan (SAC).

The formation I followed contained the following courses:

-Network Technologies.
-Programmation: COBOL.
-Advanced topic in Computer Science: UML.
-Mathématics: Statistics (Project with the C langague and Excell).

My internship at the SAC of Shawinigan had the following goals:

IT responsible: Update of the whole ACCESS database system containing more than 15000 customers information. Addition of new VBA functionnalities linked to the accounting company main tasks.
Update of the SAC's Website:

This internship allowed me to improve my integration capacities in a professional environment. My involvement in this service gave me new skills in communication and negociation as well as more experience in team work. The important aspect of such association with more than 15000 customers each year allowed me to develop a high sens of confidentiality in my work, as I had to deal with private customers information everyday.

My internship report is available here (only in french).

Shawinigan is located in Mauricie, a rural region of Qu
ébec. Even if being a little town, I discovered very attractive area, a new vision of studying and working, as well as a lot of warmly people.The town's website.
