Our co-op option for honours students allows you to integrate your classroom work with real work experience. There are over 30 organizations providing four- or eight-month industrial work-term placements. Both you and the employer benefit from these longer work placements, which allow projects to be seen through from start to finish.
Chemistry students work on both co-op and summer projects with scientists at the National Research Council, Environment Canada, Health Canada and many other government agencies. Some possibilities in high tech include Canadian Bank Note (e.g., the inks and holograms used in passports and money are produced using sophisticated technology). Other corporate employers include Syncrude Canada.
