Co-operative education

Co-op is an integral component of the degree program. This work experience is critical to providing you the opportunity to practise and apply knowledge and skills acquired throughout your studies in industrial settings and to sample different job prospects.

The UVic BSEng degree includes a mandatory co-operative education component that combines practical on-the-job experience with your university studies. Not only do you gain experience, it’s also a great way to help finance your education and to determine your long term career plans. Many students receive permanent job offers from their former co-op employers.

The BSEng Co-op program is very flexible with respect to the lengths of each work term. In addition, students with extensive technical work experience or co-op work terms completed at other post-secondary institutions may apply for credit for up to eight months.

All information regarding your co-op documents, meetings with co-op advisors, and your co-op applications can be found on Learning in Motion.
