Engineering Professional Practice

Since 1926, the Office of Engineering Professional Practice has been dedicated to helping engineering students find educationally relevant paid co-op or internship positions with hundreds of particpating employers. We are proud to be the second oldest program in the south and one of oldest cooperative education programs anywhere.



For Students

We can help you build a great foundation for your future in engineering. A co-op or internship experience will enhance your education and give you real-world experience before you graduate. Both programs offer qualified assignments that are an integral part of the educational process and will help you identify your skills, build networks, and foster relations in the engineering community.

For Employers

Our co-op and intern students can be a tremendous advantage to you and your organization. Discover how you can help shape the engineers of the future. The primary and most effective way employers typically recruit students is by attending our Engineering Expos. A secondary way to recruit is to simply post an open position within our system and then to set-up an interview day that works for you.
