In response to the pandemic, we’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions about Covid-19 for students and employers. Updates provide a variety of resources to help prepare, keep safe, and recover.
As the situation with COVID-19 continues to evolve, the Lassonde School of Engineering Co-op & Internship team continues to operate via email, telephone, and video-conference. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
