Electrical Undergraduate Professional Experience

Why do co-op?

The electrical engineering program offers paid, full-time co-operative internship opportunities. Our students and alumni can’t say enough about how taking part in co-op transformed their education, their careers and their lives. It’s no surprise. Studies have shown that the benefits of co-op are vast, including opportunities to: 

  • Develop crucial skills such as communication, teamwork and leadership.
  • Experience first-hand exactly what engineering employers expect.
  • Broaden your professional network and make lasting industry connections.
  • Gain an edge in today’s competitive job market.

As part of your studies, you’ll have the opportunity to work for leading companies in technology, automotive and energy, such as Bell Mobility, Siemens Canada, Honda Canada Manufacturing, Toronto Hydro and Ontario Power Generation – building your network and your confidence along the way.

“My internship and faculty mentors at Toronto Metropolitan University helped me understand where I want to go in life and what my true ambitions are. Without the exposure to different viewpoints and different experiences, I would not have been able to do that.”
