Within both the Environmental and Biological Engineering Programs students have the option to participate in a work/study co-operative program. This allows students to work for three terms under the supervision of practicing engineers.
The university solicites appropriate positions in industry and government. A student is also at liberty to arrange his or her own employment, but in order to qualify as part of the Co-op work experience the position must be approved by the Department.
The following table shows the layout of study, or academic terms (AT) and Co-op, or work terms (WT), for the Biological and Environmental Engineering Programs
