At UVic, learning extends beyond the classroom. Through co-operative education (co-op), you can alternate terms in class with paid work terms in positions related to your field of study.

You'll graduate with:

  • work experience
  • a great resume
  • professional contacts
  • some extra cash in your pocket
Co-op graduates are more likely to find relevant, permanent work with higher salaries.

How to apply

The following engineering degree programs include an integrated co-op component. You'll automatically be registered in co-op and receive job search guidance and training.

  • biomedical
  • civil
  • computer
  • electrical
  • mechanical
  • software

Computer science students need to apply to the co-op program. You can apply during your first or second year by contacting the engineering and computer science co-op office in ECS 204: 250-472-5800.
