First you decided to be an engineer. Then you determined what type of engineer you wanted to be. What’s next is getting the opportunity to work for a full year in your chosen field before you graduate.
The Internship Track
How Superior Engineers Are Made
Speed School combines classroom curriculum with on-the-job training provided through our ACCE-accredited Co-Op Program.
As an engineering student, you’ll normally co-op with the same employer for three alternating semesters, beginning in your fifth semester of study. Upon the completion of your Bachelor’s degree, you’ll have a full year of professional work experience and a distinct advantage over engineering graduates from other universities.
The Internship Track provides you with a self-directed cooperative education experience that matches your specific career interest.
