Our vision is to see every McMaster Science student reach their career potential and have a meaningful impact on the scientific community. Focusing on Career, Experiential and Cooperative Education, the Science Career and Cooperative Education (SCCE) office guides students on their career path and helps them to be successful in their chosen field.

Career Education

We provide students with tools and knowledge to plan for success today and prepare for a future in the field of science. Students can receive individualized services to help them achieve short and long term goals.

Career education services available to all science students include:

  • Career Advising and Exploration
  • Career Resources
  • Cover Letter and Resume Critiques
  • Career Events and Guest Speakers
  • Post-graduate Planning
  • Job Search Strategies
  • Mock Interviews
  • Training and Workshops
  • Networking Opportunities

Cooperative Education

Cooperative education emphasizes the partnership between the employer, the student and McMaster University. Co-op provides students with paid work opportunities to experience the world of work and gain academically- relevant skills. In a co-op program,students have the opportunity to acquire up to 16 months of work experience prior to graduation.

Current Faculty of Science co-op programs, all of which begin at Level III:

  • Actuarial and Financial Mathematics
  • Biochemistry – Biomedical Research Specialization
  • Chemical Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Earth and Environmental Sciences
  • Environmental Sciences
  • Geography and Environmental Sciences
  • Life Sciences
  • Mathematics and Statistics (including sub-plans) • Medical and Biological Physics
  • Molecular Biology and Genetics
  • Physics

Experiential Education

Experiential education allows students to gain real world, relevant experience in a community, research or professional setting, while working towards their degree requirements. Students benefit from the combination of academic and applied learning, which helps students further develop the necessary qualities and skills valuable to their future careers.

Experiential education opportunities include:

  • Applied Placements
  • Research Practicums
  • Science Internships
