How it Works

It works when we work together.

Cooperative education is an enhancement to an academic education created by the cooperation of academic institutions, students and industry. The Cooperative Education and Industrial Internship Program (Co-op/IIP) in the Faculty of Engineering includes trained and experienced coordinators, administrative staff, academic staff and professional engineers (in our case), who provide students with specific industry focused employability skills, help develop work place readiness, and assist with the reporting requirements of the Engineers and Geoscientists of Manitoba. Students take time away from their academic studies and enhance their learning by working in an engineering related job and completing a reflective learning assignment. Employers provide opportunities for students to find meaningful paid work placements.
