Co-op and Internship Program

Many of our students receive real-world opportunities that further their education while in school. Although an internship or a Co-op is not a required component of our program, approximately 70% of our students generally do either an internship or a co-op. A number of the placements allow students to earn academic credit and sometimes stipends while gaining on-the-job experience with successful and growing companies. These placements range from one-week mini-internships to semester-long programs. Regardless of the length of a co-op or internship, these experiences are a vital compliment to the on-campus educational components of a degree in Civil Engineering.
