|The Physics Co-op program is an integrated approach to university education which enables students to alternate academic terms on campus with work terms in suitable employment. The success of such programs is founded on the principle that students are able to apply theoretical knowledge from course studies in the workplace and return to the classroom with practical workplace experience. The Physics Co-op program consists of eight academic terms and a minimum of three work terms. It is available as an option for students in both the Major and Honours Physics Programs. Students who successfully complete all the requirements of the program will have the notation entered on their transcripts and their degree parchments.

Students interested in entering the Physics Co-op program should submit a completed application to the Physics Co-op Program Director no later than the fall semester of their second year of study. Early applications are encouraged. Applicants must be full-time students in either a major or the honours physics program, and must have a cumulative average of at least 70% in the required physics courses taken to date. Students will be admitted to the program based on their interest, aptitude, and assessed ability to combine successfully the academic requirements with the work-term requirements of the Physics Co-op program. Students not admitted may reapply at the next opportunity.
