Engineering Co-op is an optional program that allows students to gain engineering work experience prior to graduation. You may join Co-op at any time during your studies, but most students join in Level 1 or 2. Students are encouraged to complete a minimum of 12 months of Co-op, which is then recognized as part of your degree when you graduate (on your transcript). There is a mandatory Co-op prep course, Engineer 1EE0, that is part of the Co-op program. Visit Engineering Co‑op and Career Services for more information.
