ubc co-ops in industrial plants

Many of our students choose Co-op as part of their Materials Engineering program. Placements can be local, in the Lower Mainland, across Canada or International.

Students in the past year did work terms with a wide variety of organizations in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario as well as the USA, Germany and other international locations, including:

  • Acuren
  • AMEC Earth & Environmental
  • Barrick Gold Corporation
  • Ballard Power Systems
  • EVRAZ Inc.
  • Novelis Inc.

In a survey of alumni, many recommended Co-op as an excellent way to get experience ahead of graduation and be better prepared to compete in the job market.
