Co-op experiences at Brock are a hands-on, high-quality educational opportunity designed to provide you exposure to real-world employment environments.
Benefits of co-op
Practical, hands-on experience in co-op work terms will allow you to explore career possibilities, discover your interests, gain new skills and build upon existing competencies, all while developing key industry contacts. You’ll enrich your studies by applying the concepts you’ve learned in class to your work experience. This invaluable experience will increase your marketability and give you the competitive advantage you’ll need to launch your career.
Challenging and relevant employment opportunities
Every co-op position is evaluated for academic relevance and meaningful work to ensure the best environment to learn and develop your skills. Through the mandatory Pre-Employment Preparation course, you can expect to learn about the industry sectors related to your degree program. View a sample list of some of our employers by program.
