This winter, 17 post-secondary co-op students joined Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority (WDBA) for an opportunity to apply their skills and contribute to the Gordie Howe International Bridge project.

Working side-by-side with industry experts, 13 new and four returning students filled positions in departments across the organization including communications, engineering, construction, information technology and environmental. 

“At WDBA, talent and diversity are the cornerstones of our success. Students are valued members of our team, and they contribute greatly to the Gordie Howe International Bridge project,” says Tyler Hensz, Manager, Employee Experience and Resources. “We’re proud to offer an award-winning co-op program and continue to strive to deliver exceptional opportunities for youth looking to advance their careers and learn more about the project.”

WDBA has offered its co-op program since 2016. To date, WDBA has hosted over 240 co-op students with many returning for a second term. Participating post-secondary institutions across Ontario include University of Windsor, University of Waterloo, Western University and St. Clair College. 

WDBA is proud to be recognized by the University of Windsor with the Co-op/Internship Employer of the Year award four years in a row.
