Engineering Eligibility & Fees

Students in the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering

To participate in the PEY Co-op program, you must be:

  • Enrolled as an undergraduate student in the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering at the University of Toronto.
  • Enrolled in a full-time course load for the semester before and after each work term in the PEY Co-op program.
    • Students with part-time status may be considered for the program if they have received accommodation from the University. Students with PEY Co-op accommodation needs should contact the ECC office.
  • In good academic standing or proceeding after probation throughout the duration of the program and associated work terms.
  • In good financial standing at the University of Toronto.
  • Not currently part of another co-op program at the University of Toronto.

While the ECC aims to help students prepare themselves for the job market, selection of students for work terms is done by employers and the ECC cannot guarantee a placement. Students who are not selected for a work term are not required to pay the fees for that instalment.

International students

Both domestic and international students are eligible to participate. All international students require a valid work permit to participate in a work term. The International Student Immigration Advisors at the Centre for International Experience (CIE) can provide guidance and support for those who require it. Students are encouraged to apply for any required work permit as soon as possible after being admitted to PEY Co-op.

Students at the University of Toronto Mississauga

If you are enrolled at the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) in the department of Mathematical & Computational Sciences (MCS), you may be eligible for PEY Co-op. Please visit this page for more information.

Students registered in PEY Co-op can access more information on program requirements through Quercus.
