Co-op (US)

The Cooperative Education Programme is designed to give you every opportunity to succeed - on the job and in the classroom - as you apply your theoretical knowledge to the job and practical work experience to your studies. 

Co-Op students alternate between school and employment on a scheduled basis for a minimum of three 12-week sessions. Work assignments might include any of the following tasks:

Design, Test, Cost Reduction, Engine Performance, Process Improvement, CFD Analysis, Stress Analysis, Dynamic Analysis, Project Management, Software Design/Improvement.  

These programmes last up to 12 months and can be arranged to meet a mandatory part of your university course or to give you some professional work experience. They are available in a range of disciplines and can be started at various times of the year, as courses from different universities operate different schedules.
