Co-operative Education in Science

The Co-op Program allows students to alternate three, career-focused work terms with study terms and receive a co-op degree designation upon graduation. Co-op enables students to apply what they learn in class to real-world work situations and then apply what they learn at work to their classroom studies, thereby enriching their learning. It also helps students to learn more about their career options by test-driving different work environments before they graduate.

Co-op is available to students in many of our BSc (120 credit hour) Honours or Major programs. Interested students normally apply to join Co-op at the end of their first year of study.

Further details are available from departmental Co-op Academic Advisors and from S.I.T.E..
