Cooperative Education, aka Co-op, is the single best educational experience an undergraduate can
have. Co-op provides an unique opportunity for undergraduate students to connect directly with industry for “real-world” experience in bioengineering. The Department highly encourages all undergraduates, including transfer students, regardless of
future career aspirations (industry, graduate school, medical school, etc.) to participate in Co-op. Experience gained through the program will pay dividends in future endeavors, whatever they may be.
NOTE: The process for Bioengineering students differs slightly from that in the Co-op Office brochure.
Students participating in the Co-op Program register for the 1-credit course ENGR 1090 for each rotation. Students will receive a grade of "S" for satisfactory completion of the rotation. Bioengineering students who satisfactorily complete three
co-op rotations (grade of “S” in each of the three ENGR 1090 courses) can use the credits to satisfy a 3-credit advanced engineering/technical elective in the undergraduate program by submitting a professional report documenting their experience to
the Undergraduate Coordinator. The report format is as follows.
