General Co-op Information
Co-op is an educational experience combining academic and career interests with industry experience, offering the opportunity to clarify academic focus and test career interests and goals. You will apply classroom knowledge to work situations, converting theory into practice, while learning information and skills to enhance future coursework.
Being a co-op means you get greater immersion in one industry, more engagement with real engineers, and a better perspective on where you'd like your career to take you. For me, it taught me how to work in a professional environment and what skills and talents I can bring to a workplace.
