Co-op Students (MET Program)

RRC offers a co-op work semester (typically four months long x two co-op terms) for students in the Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) program. They are available for work in industry between May and August each year. Student applications are submitted to industry in the March and April time frame, with placements in industry starting in May.

MET students have skills in manufacturing and fabrication, design (AutoCAD and 3-D modeling), quality assurance, instrumentation, and technical writing to name a few. All co-op students have taken WHMIS, general and machine shop safety training. Optimally, students would work on a project on-site and not work as general labour. If you are interested in hiring a co-op student or would like more information, please contact the co-op coordinator by emailing: and reference co-op programs.
