Co-Op Programs

Students sitting outside the SEC

The Departments of Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, and Mechanical Engineering each offer cooperative education opportunities for students in their undergraduate programs.

The programs provide on-the-job experiences for undergraduate students interested in learning more about career opportunities in their fields, and create opportunities for students to network with and learn new skills from working professionals.

Before beginning their off-campus work, co-op students complete a preliminary course in basic employment competencies, which include information related to professionalism, business etiquette, and ethics in the workplace, basic resume and interviewing skills, and other job skills related to working in a science-based position.
