Students who wish to enrich their education with on-the-job engineering experience may enroll in the Cooperative Education Program. In this program, full-time study terms are alternated with full-time work assignments in cooperating industries. The program may be entered at the beginning of the junior year. Also available on a limited basis are special cooperative programs that provide special arrangements during the work-study period. For further information, consult the Co-op Coordinator at the WSU Carreer Services.
Opportunities also exist for less formal internship experiences for the students, encompassing employment by local civil/environmental consulting firms, municipalities, state government, suppliers, owner organizations, etc. Most of these experiences enhance the students' learning while providing financial support. Usually, work and school schedules are not in conflict with this type of arrangement. For further information, contact Casey Rue, CEE Undergraduate Advisor at email@example.com, (313) 577-9850.
