Co-Op Program Guidelines and Example Schedules
The sophomore-level students are eligible to begin co-op in one of the following terms:
- Summer (May, 2013)
- Fall (September, 2013)
- Spring (January, 2014)
Employers and students participating in our co-op program are asked to commit to a minimum of 3 work terms; full-time work rotating with school semesters. Please note these details:
- We prefer that our students complete their senior year in-tact (fall and spring semesters at school) so that they are able to experience their capstone design course/project in-series.
- Terms annotated with an “X” are flexible terms; if desired, employers may invite students to work during a flex term. The industry office should be made aware if the student will be working during a flex term.
- Revised work/school schedules might be allowed on a case-by-case basis. Revised schedules must be approved by the student’s academic advisor, student, employer, and the industry relations director.
Example Co-Op Schedules:
S=School, W=Work, X=Flexible Term, SU=Summer, FA=Fall, SP=Spring
