Engineering Cooperative Education

Wilkes University has a specialized co-op program for students who major in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and engineering management. The program allows engineering co-ops to work on a full-time basis to maximize the benefit to them and their employers.

Wilkes University Co-op Students...
  • are screened to meet academic grade-point and course-work requirements, and have achieved junior status.

  • receive training in professional ethics and expectations, and receive state-of-the-art laboratory experience and advanced university preparation for engineering positions.

  • are available for full-time spring co-ops (January-May), which may be extended through the summer if such employment arrangements are beneficial to both the employer and the student.

  • are required to write technical reports and complete a final academic project and an on-campus professional presentation related to the co-op experience.
