Co-op and Internship Assignments
The University of Michigan is proud to work hand in hand with industry to promote a healthy high-tech future for America. The Cooperative Education Program enables students to alternate school and work terms and apply their skills to the work setting. Ideally, co-op is eight-months of hands-on engineering experience, occurring either May through December or January through August. Both types of assignments may be in locations all over the world.
Offering Co-op and Internship assignments provide an excellent opportunity for employers to contribute to both the academic and professional development of our students. Employers gain a valuable source of talent combined with the chance to identify qualified candidates before they graduate.
Our Cooperative Education Program offers many advantages to participating employers:
- Co-op students can and do make productive contributions to their co-op employer.
- Co-op students returning to school contribute to your positive image on campus.
- Students can facilitate communication between faculty and employer.
- You can recruit and select co-op students to meet your company’s current and future personnel needs.
- You gain an experienced, trained employee by offering a permanent starting position to a former co-op student after graduation.
- Permanent employees recruited and hired through a cooperative education program have higher retention rates
The Cooperative Education Program at the Engineering Career Resource Center has set the following guidelines for participating employer companies:
- Your support of the University of Michigan’s academic standards is requested. Work assignments should reflect a student’s level of technical ability.
- Work experience should supplement and utilize the co-op student’s background while enhancing the student’s educational development.
- We require that salary be commensurate with ability, experience, and responsibility.
- The co-op student should be supervised by a manager who can effectively offer guidance and counseling during the work session. The student should be counseled regarding job performance at the end of each work term.
- We ask that the supervisor sends a written evaluation of the co-op student’s performance to the College of Engineering Co-op Coordinator at the completion of a work term.
