Optional Cooperative Education

Cooperative education offers the student the opportunity to put classroom work into practical use while still in school, resulting in early career identification and greater motivation as well as providing a source of funds. All students majoring in engineering and engineering technology may participate in the cooperative education program. To be eligible, students must have completed three semesters and have a cumulative grade-point average of 2.3 or higher. Those applying for the program will be accepted on the basis of grade-point average, motivation and attitude. The number of students placed depends on the availability of jobs.  Students alternate full-time semesters of work with full-time school semesters.
