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 also allow for six-month rotations, so students can become involved in larger projects and responsibilities, and employers can maximize their time and training. These rotations will run from Jan-June or July-December. Students are still able to complete three alternating four-month rotations as well. This creates more options for students and allows employers to more flexibility when filling their open roles.
The ELPE office will also assist with summer 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!
