Engineering Co-op & Internship Office

Complement Your Degree with Experience

You can work in industry, business, or government areas and alternate your full-time semesters of study with your full-time, paid work experiences. While interns work with a company for one rotation, many co-op students stay with the same employer throughout their program. A vast majority of our employers for co-ops and interns are located in the Southwest Ohio region.

Requirements and Process

Full-time students in an engineering or engineering technology program are qualified to participate in our Co-op & Internship program. Part-time students are not eligible.

  • Students can accept internships the summer after their first year, but they generally begin the interview process during their third semester of study.
  • Transfer students can co-op or intern after completing one semester as a full-time student.

Professional Development Seminar

Our EGR 200 Seminar exposes students to professional skills that guide them to co-op and internship opportunities. These skills include job searches, resume writing, interviewing skills, professional networking, elevator pitches and more.

Work Term Expectations

Students who accept an offer register their work experience with our office to maintain their full-time status during academic semesters, receive support throughout the work term, engage in reflective professional development skills, and receive benefits such as early move-in options and free school gear.
