Master of Engineering

The Co-operative Education Program offers students the opportunity to combine their classroom experiences with related work experiences. Students who apply and are accepted into the Co-operative Education Program must successfully complete one paid work experience that is four months in length. The experience gained while participating in a supervised work term is viewed as an integral component of the student's educational program. Students will make contacts and build their networks, which will help them find employment upon graduation. There is no better way than this to begin formulating your future career plan.

The number of available spots is limited, so only the most qualified candidates will be admitted. Students must meet the following minimum admissions requirements to be considered:

  • Must apply for admission into the co-op program prior to study term one 

  • Must have strong written and verbal communication skills 

  • Must be enrolled in full-time studies in the Engineering program 

  • Must not be on a leave of absence when taking Transform or during the job competition 

  • Must not be planning on taking any courses during the work term 

  • Must not end their program on a work term (i.e. must be returning to school following the completion of the work term)

Continuation Requirement:

  • Students must obtain a pass in all courses credited to their program, with a minimum overall average of 70% 

  • A grade of less than 60% in any course counts as a failure 

   Term 1     


   Term 2


   Term 3


   Term 4


Each student accepted into the program will have to complete a non-credit job readiness program, Transform during their first study term. A pass in Transform will allow students to move onto the job competition, where they compete for placement opportunities.

Students can apply for the Master of Engineering Co-op prior to starting their first semester.  

Students who have formally accepted their offer of admission to the Master of Engineering program by a specified date each term, will be emailed an information package with instructions on how to apply for co-op. Admission to the Co-op program is highly competitive. 

Co-op work term placements are not guaranteed. The process of securing a placement is a partnership between the student, the employer, and the Office of Co-operative Education and Workplace Partnerships. Securing a placement will depend entirely upon the student’s success during the application and interview process.
