Think Different


I can’t say enough about my co-op experiences, if it were up to me I would make co-op a mandatory part of almost every program in university - that’s how instrumental it has been in developing me into the person I am today.

Building Bridges!


My co-op experience has helped me improve my communication, contractual, presentation, managerial and technical skills in civil engineering. It has been an amazing experience working with personnel at all levels. 

Innovation at Work!


I am learning transferable skills that can be applied in any future endeavors. For example, I have gotten a chance to build and enhance my Microsoft Office skills, something that is valuable in any industry and any role. I have also gained knowledge of Human Resources as a whole and how it plays an important role in a company or workplace.
