Engineering Co-op


Students who accept a co-op job are expected to create a work term and academic course plan.

The plan should include the current semester through their expected graduation date; specifying the terms that they are scheduled to be at work and the courses that they intend to take during the academic semesters.

The student should share this plan with their academic advisor prior to their first work term and ask the advisor to explain any concerns.

The student and advisor should communicate during advising week each semester to review and adjust the plan. If the student is unable to meet in-person due to their work schedule or location, email communication will suffice. The student's registration hold will be removed when the course plan is approved by the academic advisor.

When creating a co-op plan, academic courses must be rearranged in order to accommodate work terms. It is important to remember:

The below course lists were generated using the undergraduate bulletin for the
2012-2013 academic year. They include the academic requirements for each program as well as the pre-requisite information for each course.

These schedule tools are meant to assist you in planning your work/school schedules for the co-op program. The undergraduate bulletin listings take precedence over these schedule lists if there is a discrepancy.

If a mistake is found, please notify the industry relations office.
