SEC Approval of Your Destination
The SEC must verify the level of risk of the desired region or country before approving your co-op work term. If the level of risk is judged to be too high, the co-op work term will be denied. A second verification will be made a few weeks before your departure.
Co-op work terms in France and other locations in Europe at the bachelor's level and for certain Master with project programs
Co-op work terms are conducted in collaboration with partner universities, including the Université Libre de Bruxelles (Free University of Brussels) in Belgium, CESI École d’Ingénieurs (engineering school) in France and some of their industrial partners.
The LÉTS Go Technology Missions project recently completed a mission in France. Participants met with members of academic institutions that have partnered with ÉTS, including École Spéciale des Travaux Publics (ESTP – Specialized public works school) in Paris, INSA Lyon and Télécom Paris. These institutions, and many others, welcome students from ÉTS for exchange sessions. Obtain more information from the International Relations Service.
Please note that you can also make arrangements with many of the faculties at these institutions to find a co-op research work term onsite (Level S2, S3 and SM).
Participants in the Technology Mission also met with a number of companies, including Airbus France, Alstom, Berger Levrault and Eiffage, which offered co-op work terms in a variety of engineering disciplines in France and elsewhere in Europe. We encourage you to consult their websites and career pages. You can conduct your own search for a co-op work term and present your request to the Co-operative Education Service.
Consult the section of the MonÉTS portal entitled Réseautage et stages par contacts directs (Networking and co-op work terms by direct contact), where you will find a number of offers for co-op work terms in Canada, especially through the Mitacs program, along with some international offers. You can conduct your own search for a co-op work term and present your request to the Co-operative Education Service.
Please note that the Coop Japan Program, organized in collaboration with the University of British Colombia (UBC), has been temporarily suspended, and will return in 2023.
