Level 1 Students: Welcome to the Co-op Program!

Picture1

Welcome to McMaster University!  If you chose co-op as an option for your engineering/computer science degree program, we look forward to seeing you at one of our orientation sessions for the co-op program.  (It is not mandatory/required to come to a co-op orientation session, but we strongly suggest it.)

A listing of the co-op program orientation sessions is available by clicking on this link. (Note: Attending an orientation session is not a substitute for completing ENGINEER 1EE0, the required co-op program prep course.  More details will be provided in the orientation session.)

When should you take ENGINEER 1EE0?  ENG 1EE0 is the co-op prep course that all co-op students have to complete before beginning their co-op job search.  Level 1 students may complete the course during Term 1 (fall term) or Term 2 (winter term) of their first year.  Term 2 may be a better fit with the ENG 1 course schedule; however, if you decide to complete 1EE0 during Term 1, we advise that you register for the classes taking place in October or November.  More details about the registration process, as well as class times, are available at this link.

NOTE: You would also have the option of completing 1EE0 in April 2017 or during Summer 2017.  Dates and times will be confirmed in the spring.  Students may also complete 1EE0 in Level 2 (during the fall term).

LEVEL 2+ CO-OP Students: ENG 1EE0 Classes for Fall 2016

Welcome back to McMaster!  If you are a Level 2 co-op student or above (in engineering or computer science), and you need to complete the co-op prep course (ENGINEER 1EE0) in Fall 2016, the following steps need to be completed:

1) You will need to choose a section via your OSCARplus account.  To reserve your seat in one of the 1EE0 sections, log in to your OSCARplus account (https://www.oscarplusmcmaster.ca/); select “Events” on the left navigation bar, and then click on the “Engineering” link.  Search for a section by event type – Eng Co-op Course, or by date.  After reviewing the list of section offerings, sign up for the class that best fits your schedule.

A listing of 1EE0 course sections is also available by clicking on this link.

Why do students also have to sign up via OSCARplus?  Due to the limited number of 1EE0 sections originally scheduled and posted in MOSAIC, ECCS has scheduled additional class dates and times for the co-op prep course.

ADVANTAGE: You do NOT need to sign up for the same section as assigned to you in SOLAR.  Students are welcome to attend another section if it is a more convenient time/date.  (Due to scheduling conflicts, some sections listed in MOSAIC will NOT be offered.)

BACHELOR OF TECHNOLOGY students: please speak with an ECCS staff member, in JHE A214, about your co-op prep class.
