Paul Gordon, Bio Medical Engineering

"This co-op has probably been the single biggest career formative experience of my life. It showed me a way to combine my faith and passions for helping people and ministry with the engineering education I’m gaining here at UC. I know that I will be involved in medical mission work in my future in one way or another."

Caycee Boyce, Graphic Communications Design

"During my co-op at Christie's Auction House I worked on several catalogs, from covers to text layout. I’ve done what’s called a vanity (a publication highlighting a specific work in the sale), doing all the layout and text styling. I’ve helped create exhibition materials, from massive window banners to simple lot cards...I think the biggest 'win' would be the Edward Hopper vanity I helped design. I was so excited when I got a credit line in the back of the vanity!"

Anne Wissemeier, Chemical Engineering/Psychology

"As a co-op for Marathon Petroleum Company, I worked to help optimize many different processes, from work flow practices, to gasoline blend recipes. I worked as a young professional, with the help of a mentor to complete "value add" tasks for the company each co-op term."

Kyle Oldfield, Industrial Design - Marketing Minor

"A day doesn’t go by that I don’t reflect on how grateful I am to have been given the opportunity to co-op with the companies I have. Each company has also helped me grow in more ways than I thought possible... With 7 co-ops down, I will graduate with about 2 years worth of work experience."
