Cooperative engineering education in industry begins during the spring/summer semester following admission to major standing in the B.S.E. program. Students then alternate periods of cooperative education with periods of academic study for the next 28 months. The cooperative education cycle provides the student with 1,500 to 2,000 hours of work experience.

Placement of students in cooperative education is made through the Career Services Office. Students must enroll in EGR 289 during the fall semester for placement in the following spring/summer semester.
