About

THE PROGRAM:

Co-operative education (Co-op) combines classroom learning with practical work experience.  Students gain up to 20 months of paid, relevant and invaluable work experience while businesses gain access to bright, motivated students for short and long-term employment.

Since its beginning in 1980, the University of British Columbia Engineering Co-op Program has secured 16,500  work term opportunities for students with employers locally, nationally and around the world .

Co-op is an option for all of UBC’s engineering disciplines.  Undergraduate students apply at the beginning of their second year (or year three, if a part of the UNBC/UBC Environmental Engineering program).  Masters students apply at the beginning of their program.

We invite you to learn more about our program and students by reviewing our publications.  Of course, we are always happy to hear from you.  Please contact us at any time.
