Co-op Program

The program consists of two 8-month and one 4-month work terms requiring 5 years to complete instead of the conventional 4 years.

About half our students participate in the Co-Op Program. The Co-Op Office places students in mining engineering-type jobs with companies around the world.

If you would like more information or have a job for a student, please visit: www.ubcengineeringcoop.com

Field Trips

Every year the 4th Year graduating class plans and fund-raises for a field trip to a mining region overseas. These trips can be summed up in one word: AMAZING!

It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that for many students these trips are probably one of the best experiences of their lives.
