Pitt | Swanson Engineering
For Alumni

“Participating in Pitt's co-op program prepared me with the tools I needed to easily transition from the academic to professional environment upon graduation. The experience I gained during my co-op rotations provided me with an advantage over graduating candidates without my real-life experience. Now, as a hiring manager I seek out engineering candidates that have had co-op or internship experience prior to graduation, knowing that it is typically these individuals that are ambitious and prepared for the transition into the professional environment.”
