The Summer Engineering Co-Op Program (SECOP) assists undergraduate students to find career-related summer employment. This program complements the Internship Program and will allow students the opportunity to gain practical work experience during the summer months.
This optional program is available to all full-time undergraduate students in the Faculty of Engineering who enrol with Engineering Career Services and maintain a 65% average, have a solid academic record, have completed a Preparation and Training Workshop and are returning to Engineering full-time during the following academic year. Students interested in SECOP must apply online in the fall of the year in which they wish a summer placement. Students who accept a summer engineering co-op placement will receive a transcript notation (Engineering Science 1150, Engineering Science 2250, Engineering Science 3350, Engineering Science 4450 - depending on their year of registration) in the summer term in which they participate. Furthermore, successful completion of SECOP requires that the student complete and submit a written report and a satisfactory performance evaluation from their employer to Engineering Career Services. A small administrative fee will be charged for the successful placement in a SECOP position.
