Co-op Program in Chemistry

The Co-op Program in Chemistry has the same academic course requirements as the Honours or Specialization programs taken by "regular stream" undergraduates. However, Coop students alternate their academic semesters with off-campus paid work terms in government or industrial laboratories where they are employed as chemists in-training.
