What students have said about the Engineering Co-op Program:

“The work experience I have attained through the Co-op program will be one of my more valuable assets when applying for an engineering position after graduation.”
- Jay Axness

“There is no doubt in my mind that my communication skills have improved because of this Co-op. I feel that the best example of this would be the interview week over spring break. Going through nine interviews with well known companies has given me a lot of confidence for the future. Also, public speaking at work whether it be a presentation in a meeting or just an informal conversation with colleagues has improved my technical speaking abilities.”
- Tom Nigon
