Chemical Engineering Co-op program

In the Chemical Engineering Co-op program, we’ll give you two crucial tools: the knowledge to transform the earth’s raw materials into essential products, and the awareness you need to protect the environment. Our mandatory co-operative internship program puts those skills into action, connecting you with industry leaders and government agencies such as Apotex, Sanofi Pasteur, Environment Canada and Suncor Energy. From making our lakes and rivers cleaner, to improving industrial safety standards, you’ll apply your skills in chemistry and engineering sciences to sustain and enrich all of our lives.
