What jobs qualify?
Co-op/IIP work terms must be paid, full time employment that is approximately 16 weeks long and will provide you with experiences that relate to your engineering education. Most often there will need to be a Professional Engineer working in the employer’s organization but we can offer support to students if that is not the case. Sometimes this can be difficult to determine. Your Co-op/IIP coordinator can help you decide if an opportunity is suitable to be included as a Co-op/IIP work term.
