|Description:||Materials engineers work to produce, process, and manufacture raw materials and finished products, impacting the world around us in immeasurable ways. The University of Alberta is the only university in Western Canada to offer a Materials Engineering program; our graduates are in demand across Canada and around the world in industries as diverse as energy, biology, medicine, consumer products, and communications.
This degree can be taken as a Co-op (co-operative education) program. Through the Co-op program, you will have the opportunity to complete paid, supervised work terms throughout your degree. Co-op programs are great way to challenge yourself, gain relevant work experience, and make connections to industry before you graduate! Most co-op programs include five work terms lasting four months each, in addition to the usual eight terms (four years) of full-time study. Therefore, co-op programs require five years to complete.
