Exciting Program Changes!
Pitt’s Co-op program has recently undergone a major change and is a part of the expansion in student services within the Swanson School of Engineering!
The new Co-op & Internship division in the Swanson School of Engineering’s Office of Experiential Learning & Professional Engagement(ELPE) will assist in connecting students, alumni, and industry, both in the US and world-wide.
Our goal is to help students explore and grow their personal and professional interests, while also linking our employer partners with the next generation of talent.
Co-op has been revised to allow for six-month rotations, so students can become involved in larger projects and responsibilities, and employers can maximize their time and training. Rotations will run from Jan-June or July-December. Students can continue to gain experience, compensation, and credit within this academic program. Students currently in a co-op will continue with their approved schedules as planned.
The ELPE office will also assist with internships. Global opportunities are also part of the new expansion.
Professional development and co-curriculars, combined with career development tools and support services will make ELPE a one-stop-shop for both students and employers. We look forward to partnering!
