Co-op Education for Employers

Co-op Education is a structured program that integrates a student's academic studies with relevant, paid work experience. Students alternate periods of professional learning with their formal education.

This balance of work and schooling enables employers to gain access to highly skillful and talented employees.

The co-op program is active in the School of Engineering and the Faculty of Management.
