Co-ops and Internships
Participating in the College of Engineering’s Engineering Co-op and Internship Program is a great way to get industry experience and to help determine what career path and goals you will have after graduation.
Usually three work periods complete a co-op and the work periods may alternate during semesters and/or summers. The seventh semester is a good semester to be away from campus making scheduling easier. For some students who are sufficiently ahead, the fourth semester may also be a good semester to consider a co-op experience.
You should consult your adviser with regard to co-op and academic scheduling to accommodate your time away from campus.
