How does it work?

In the first half of your degree, we will train you in the essential toolkit needed by all engineers to analyze problems and design new solutions. In the second half of your degree, you’ll apply your knowledge in an intense period of hands-on learning – both in school and via our mandatory co-op program. This education will count towards certification as a Professional Engineer (P.Eng) in the future.
