Co-op for Employers

Students wanting more information on the co-op program should consult Co-op for Students.

What is co-op?

Co-op is an opportunity for students to get paid workplace experience with an employer in their field. We have students in chemical, mechanical, and mining engineering available to join companies for 4-, 8-, 12- or 16-month placements

Why hire co-op students?

In addition to helping develop future engineering talent in your industry, co-op students provide a number of benefits for employers including:

  • short-term workers to meet immediate needs;
  • the opportunity to evaluate potential future employees;
  • potential tax credits of up to $3000 per work term through the Ontario Co-operative Education Tax Credit; and,
  • wage subsidies of up to $7000 for employers through the Mining Industry Human Resources (MiHR) Council’s Gearing Up program

How can we hire a co-op student?

Hiring a student through the Bharti School of Engineering co-op program requires just four easy steps:

  1. Employers submit a job posting that we can distribute to eligible students.
  2. Students then submit applications to indicate their interest in a particular position.
  3. Employers review the applications and interview short-listed candidates.
  4. Employers make an offer to their preferred candidate.
