Bachelor of Engineering (Co‑op)

Apply classroom theories to real-world problems

Our Bachelor of Engineering Co-operative Education program integrates academic study with university-approved industrial experience. Graduation from this program requires satisfactory performance in both areas.

Co-op students take the same academic program as the non co-op program; however, our co-op option gives you an opportunity to complement your studies with three paid work terms. Gain invaluable real-world experience and pay for your studies at the same time.

Work terms begin in your third year and typically last four months.
