ECS offers three contests per year to recognize our students and employers. If you had a great experience on a co-op or internship, consider entering the Cool Co-op contest or nominating your employer for the Employer of the Year Award. Supervisors nominate outstanding students for the Student Impact Award.

ECS knows that some companies go above and beyond to provide their co-ops and interns a stellar experience during the work term. If you had a fantastic engineering co-op or internship experience between June 2020 and May 2021, consider nominating that company for the ECS Employer of the Year.
