 Getting a degree does not guarantee getting a job.

There's much more to it.  You need strong skills and personal vision - coupled with discipline-specific knowledge - to attract the attention of eployers.  The most important factor, employers tell us, is the ability to articulate what you've learned, demonstrated by your accomplishments in and out of the classroom.  Do you have the essentials for success?


Co-op and Internships

Cooperative Education is primarily a traditional, alternating period of work assignments in an engineering function. Internships are usually a one time only work experience in an engineering function. These experiences are usually paid and available for credit through registration via the Center.

To receive credit for a co-op experience, read EGR 393 Guidelines, complete the Placed Student Information Sheet and register at The Center.
