Environmental Engineering Program Co-op (ENVE:C)

School of Engineering, College of Engineering and Physical Sciences

The degradation of the environment is a concern shared by citizens, government agencies, non governmental agencies and businesses. The Environmental Engineering program offered by the School of Engineering provides graduates with design and engineering skills to minimize and prevent the impact of human activities on water, soil and air systems. Both simple and innovative solutions are part of the tool box. Graduates will also creatively integrate humanistic and social perspectives in their solutions.

Program Requirements

The Co-op program in Environmental Engineering is a five year program, including five work terms. Students must complete a Fall, Winter and Summer work term and must follow the academic work schedule as outlined below (also found on the Co-operative Education website: https://www.recruitguelph.ca/cecs/). Please refer to the Co-operative Education program policy with respect to adjusting this schedule.
