Co-op Admission Requirements

With the exception of the Chemical engineering co-op program, admission to optional co-op programs is competitive. Students apply and are admitted based on their cumulative grade points average (CGPA). Some programs may require additional information such as a resume and/or a statement of interest.

In addition, students must have a CLEAR academic standing and meet the stated minimum CGPA at the end of second/third year. To stay in the co-op program, students must maintain a CLEAR academic standing and meet the minimum CGPA requirement.
