ME Co-op Coordinator: Julia King
Co-op programs provide students with exceptional work integrated learning experience. Students alternate semesters of on-campus academic study with sessions of work with a valued industry partner. Those who participate in co-op gain 12-20 months of paid work experience by graduation. By fulfilling all requirements of the Co-Op Program, students will receive an academic certificate to accompany their Mechanical Engineering degree.
