Co-ops – Cooperative Education Work Placements

The Cooperative Education program at the School of Engineering is developed to help students gain important experience prior to graduation and to fill the need for engineering talent in the local and national industry. This program is targeted at rising juniors and seniors seeking longer experience in industry rather than just a 3 month summer internship. If students go on co-op for two semesters in a row (fall and spring), this will become a 5 year program. Co-ops are paid positions that can help off set other costs in finishing your degree plus provide real world valuable experience that provides you the competitive edge in your full-time job search.
