Marquette partners with more than 100 leading engineering and technology firms to support its co-op and internship program.  Our proud co-op tradition extends back to the founding of the program in 1919 as one of the first such programs in the country.

Co-Op Program

  • Employers recruit co-ops from September of the sophomore-year through December the junior-year; minimum of 3 work terms with the same employer
  • Student may earn 1 credit for each completed co-op work term; 3 co-op credits will fulfill a technical elective in their engineering curriculum
