Co-op/Internship Drop-In Hours (105 Bergeron Centre for Engineering Excellence)
The program provides you with a form of education that links classroom learning with paid related employment experiences. From day one, Lassonde students will explore their passions in depth and gain perspective from the real world. We are preparing Lassonde students for careers that will look more like a challenging obstacle course than a steady climb up the corporate ladder. Every career will require an entrepreneurial outlook with project-based roles, freelance portfolios and self-employment becoming the norm rather than the exception.
