It is a requirement of the co-op program that the student’s work experience must be technical in nature and provide the opportunity to apply their engineering knowledge and skills. The program is intended to help the student clarify their career goals, increase their performance and engagement in the classroom and form their professional network.

One of the requirements that must be satisfied to earn credit for each work term is to complete a performance review and evaluation of each co-op work term. At the completion of each work term, students should complete the work exit report and employers should evaluate student performance when filling out the employer evaluation.
