Co-op Students


Under the mentorship of a team of multi-disciplinary professionals, students are challenged to innovate in the areas of design, maintenance, continuous improvement, quality, and support services. A hands-on, applied, practical experience is what Michelin co-op students can expect.

Learn about Michelin's Co-op Program from the students themselves

Michelin's co-op program provides engineering students with the opportunity to learn and contribute to improving quality, productivity, safety and reliability.

"When I started, I saw that the company was flexible and supportive, and every day was a new opportunity for me to learn and grow in my professional life. It is a great environment to work in and never gets boring. Michelin believes in their people and culture by training and developing each co-op student to become a successful contributor to the overall success of the Michelin Group."

Compensation: Like our full-time engineers, our co-op students work as salaried employees. Our rates are based on level of degree completion and experience.

In-person experience: All positions offered are located on-site at our world-class manufacturing facilities. Our co-op experiences are best suited to students pursuing hands-on, applied, practical experiences.

At our NS sites where students are unable to commute, travel expenses and accommodations are provided.

WAFAA, Co-op Student
"I am completing my 2nd co-op term with the Innovation Team as a mechanical designer. During this time, I have learned more about my discipline and performed the kind of hands-on work that I don’t get to do in school. I work with operators to understand their challenges, develop solutions, and then design and test my ideas. What I like about Michelin is that all employees are encouraged to think of ways to make the company even better; I wake up every morning excited to go to work with my second family."
