Our program speaks for itself

As a co-op student, Babcock empowered and trusted me with the autonomy and responsibility to lead challenging projects. I was shown a level of respect as a co-op that ensured my skills and contributions were welcomed and my opinion was heard and valued. Babcock supported and encouraged me to do each of my 3 co-ops in a different department and role. The experience gained through these different placements gave me the skills and knowledge to become a valuable contributor to the business after the completion of my degree.

Data Scientist, Babcock Canada

My co-op terms with Babcock Canada enabled me to both develop within industry and better understand engineering principles when back in the classroom. I have been lucky enough to work with so many great people in the Combat Systems Integration Group and across the business as a whole. Babcock gave me a jump start on my career by supporting my professional development over the course of 2 years allowing me to learn from knowledgeable mentors, gain practical experience and secure a permanent position by the time I graduated.

Chloe Pearson
Systems Engineering Practitioner (Junior Mechanical Engineering Technologist), Babcock Canada

My 2 co-op terms at Babcock Canada were the perfect pieces to my university experience. During my time, I was able to apply my theoretical knowledge from lectures and learn of industry best practices by doing. Babcock makes a tremendous effort to cultivate an environment for learning not only for students but all employees. It developed me both personally and professionally, through fantastic mentorship and unbelievable opportunities! I never would have thought that a job while I was in school would be so fulfilling.

February 11th is International Day of Women and Girls in Science, a day to recognize a significant gender gap that has persisted throughout all levels of science, technology, engineering, and mathematic (STEM) disciplines. Even though women have made tremendous progress towards increasing their participation in higher education, they are still under-represented in these fields.
