Cooperative Education Program

Experience is the best teacher


Cooperative education is an experiential educational model in which students alternate semesters of traditional academic education with semesters of working full-time in their field of study.

Cooperative Education Program Mission Statement

Ingram School of Engineering co-op students contribute talent, skills, next generation perspectives, and represent all dimensions of America's diverse society in the workplace. Real-world engineering experiences through co-ops are crucial to preparing our students for the world beyond college. Today's students will become tomorrow's STEM workforce, innovators, and leaders. The ISoE Cooperative Education Program is committed to helping our students take those next steps forward.
