Engineering Science’s Co-operative Education Program combines relevant job experience with classroom studies. Students complete at least 3 work terms, working in research or industrial facilities, often designing and building real products. 

Our mandatory undergraduate Co-op program is part of the School of Engineering Science in the Faculty of Applied Sciences at SFU. The School is fully accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board. The Co-op program provides services on the Burnaby campus, and is accredited by the Canadian Association for Co-operative Education.

Students should review the Co-op requirements and policies of the School that relate to Co-op.

Our Co-op program offers opportunities which enhance a student's employability after graduation. We work closely with our students to help them prepare their job search strategy and materials, conduct professional interviews, and support the exploration and development of their career goals. Our students secure work terms across Canada, in the Silicon Valley, and internationally in places such as Germany, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan and China.


All students are automatically enrolled into Co-op when they enter into the Engineering Science program. It is mandatory for students to complete at least 3 terms of Co-op prior to receiving their degree.
