What is Co-op Education?

Co-operative Education (Co-op) alternates practical, career-related, paid work terms with semesters in class, giving you 12-16 months of supervised work experience by the time you graduate.

We are accredited by Co-operative Education and Work-integrated Learning (CEWIL) Canada, so we meet the standards for commitment and quality set by our national governing body.

Why should I get involved in the Co-op/Internship program?

 In a word: experience. You will kick-start your career. Earn while you learn-typical salaries range from $12,000-$14,000 per semester - as you sample different career choices, work environments, and locations. You will notice that your grades will go up too, because you are integrating classroom theory with practical experience on the job.

Are you thinking that working during summer is the same as working as a Co-op student? Wrong! Co-op students receive better pay and get jobs that require more responsibility. If you want to get the best work experience possible while in undergraduate study, you need to be a part of Co-op education!

What is the “Co-op” designation?
If you successfully complete the required number of work terms, you will receive Co-op Designation on your degree. You will have attained the kind of valuable experience that will get you hired.

How do I know what I have to do?

When you apply for Co-op or Internship, you have to complete an "Entrance Meeting" with a coordinator to discuss the program, go over expectations, and how the program works. It is also a good idea to read or download a copy of the Student Handbook for reference.
