The Engineering Cooperative Education/Internship Program helps undergraduate and masters-level students gain practical work experience in conjunction with their academic work.
The cooperative method has proven to be exceptionally effective in bringing together future employees and companies in a way that is beneficial to all parties. Companies gain well-educated, relatively short-term employees with the latest knowledge and training. Students gain first-hand experience and a preview of the work-world that they will be entering.
Since its inception, UTA's Engineering Cooperative Education/Internship Program has gained the endorsement of numerous companies in the Dallas/ Fort Worth Metroplex and elsewhere.
Differences Between Cooperative Education and Internships:
- Cooperative Education - Students can work full-time or part time – employment is by semester. The co-op program is associated with the University, and the student enrolls in a pass/fail course.
- Internships are ongoing, part-time positions that work around school schedules.
- All positions can be posted through HIREANENGINEER. Additional assistance is available by contacting the Co-op/Intern Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 817-272-2569.
- On-campus interviews with potential employees can be arranged.
