The Honors Co-Op is not just a placement program. Companies participating in the Co-Op program make a commitment to provide a training environment for the interns and agree to faculty supervision of the work performed. Each job description is carefully scrutinized before being placed in the program and not every job qualifies.
A student cannot obtain just any job in industry and be expected to be part of the Honors Co-Op program. The Honors Co-Op is an honor program. The student must qualify, as described above and the job must be approved by the college. The Co-Op program does not accept any job as qualifying; the job must be technical and be related to the field of study. Additionally, the sponsoring company must sign an agreement with the college, see the pages listed under Company.
One Year Commitment
The Honors Co-Op participation is a one-year commitment, starting in the summer and lasting until the end of the spring semester of the following year. See the page Honor's Co-Op for You for more details.
