Engineering Co-op Program

in this section

The Engineering Cooperative Education Program provides an opportunity for students to gain 28 weeks of practical experience in industry and other engineering-related venues while still graduating in four years. Students take Cornell courses during the summer after their sophomore year and work during the fall or spring of their junior year and the following summer. By participating in carefully monitored, paid jobs, co-op students are able to explore their interests and acquire a better understanding of engineering as a profession. Students must maintain a 2.7+ GPA to participate.  Apply during the sophomore year.
