Cornell University’s Engineering Cooperative Education program is founded in the College of Engineering’s vision to “prepare our undergraduate students for lifelong creation of knowledge and solutions to complex real-world problems.” Cornell University’s Engineering Co-op program provides an educational opportunity that integrates a student's academic and career interests with paid, productive work experience at cooperating organizations throughout the world. During this experience, students convert theory into practice as they apply classroom knowledge to practical work situations, as well as gain knowledge and skills, which will enhance future coursework. In addition, the program offers students the opportunity to clarify their academic focus and test their career interests and goals.
Students typically apply for Co-op positions during sophomore year in order to work during junior year. Students must have junior status, prior to the first work term. A cumulative GPA of 2.7 or better and a declared major by the end of sophomore year are required to participate.
