Note: Some students will stay with the same employer for all co-op semesters; others will request a job change. Students may request a job change after working two semesters with the same employer.
Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, and Aerospace Engineering, and all majors in the College of Business will continue with two alternating sections of students by class. Basically, this is the same as the present co-op program.
All other engineering and applied science majors and all co-op majors in DAAP will move to a single section model. This means that all students in one class year will be on co-op at the same time. However, due to the rotation period through the year, these students will alternate semesters with students one year ahead or behind.
The bottom line is employers will still have year round coverage to fill their needs.
