Summer Engineering Co-op

Congratulations on your Summer Engineering Co-op Program (SECOP) placement.  Please see the quick links to the left for all of the forms/documents you will need throughout your placement.

Engineering Career Services will keep in touch with you while you are on Summer Co-op, to keep you informed of important dates, deadlines and new developments in Western Engineering. Please make sure to check your Western e-mail account regularly.

SECOP Components:

The Process

Online enrollment and approval begins in September on CareerCentral.

You should log-in to CareerCentral regularly to view and apply to summer job postings.

Note: SECOP postings typically do not start until January, though sometimes there will be an early company posting in December.  Read each job posting carefully to determine: application deadline date, interview dates, length/dates of co-op, requested degree programs, and method of application.

All students who receive an interview will be contacted by e-mail and details will be in CareerCentral. Interviews will take place on and off campus, they may require some traveling or occur via phone or video-conferencing.

If you are successful securing a co-op position on your own, you will need to bring the following items into Engineering Career Services.

After reviewing this information, Engineering Career Services will let you know if the position can be counted as an official co-op placement.

SECOP placements begin at the start of May.

Performance evaluations must be completed by your supervisor by the end of the summer co-op term.

Reneging on a job offer after it has been accepted is not permitted and consequences will follow. Review all of the Internship and SECOP Policies and Procedures.
