FAQ’s Cooperative Education
"I am glad that I was open enough to pursue a co-op because I am now fully prepared for my future career. Learning the material presented in class is only half the battle. I got the opportunity to experience and learn about engineering in a business setting. I will already know what to expect on the job."
