The Co-op and Placement Office can also help you secure a permanent, full-time job as you near graduation.

Did you know?

Full-time salaries are likely to be higher if you participate in a co-op than a similar-degree student who has not participated in the program. Employers report that they are more likely to hire someone with co-op experience than without. Even if you are looking for a different type of permanent, full-time experience from what the co-op provided, we can still help and provide guidance with your next steps after graduating.

97 percent of spring 2021 engineering bachelor's degree graduates have participated in at least one form of experiential learning

If you never had a co-op, we can still help.

The co-op and placement office can help any undergraduate engineering student with permanent placement, regardless of whether or not you have held a co-op position as an engineering student.

Juan Camacho Biomedical Engineering student at The University of Akron

“The co-op and placement office made planning for post-grad life so easy! They consistently sent out my resume to their corporate connections on my behalf. When they heard about a newly posted position at a local engineering firm, they called me right away. They are completely committed to student success.”

— Juan Camacho, B.S. in Biomedical Engineering, '19
