Leadership Development

J. Michael Stone Engineering Professional Practice Leadership Development Program

This program is specifically for engineering students who obtain co-op and internship assignments through our office.

While on assignment, students are provided books on leadership development and communication skills and are encouraged to apply the skills learned during their assignments. The program also enables us to bring speakers to campus for additional leadership development opportunities. These leadership skills go hand in hand with the academic knowledge our students gain through their coursework and add to the experiential learning process, combining problem-solving and lifelong learning skills with critical reflection.

The program began in 2014 thanks to the generosity of alumnus J. Michael Stone (‘63).

Student Training: Prep for Success

We continue to hold our highly successful Prep for Success sessions each fall and spring semester, which provide tips and advice to aspiring co-op and internship students. Topics include dressing for success, personal branding, interview preparation, interview strategies, and recommendations on how to succeed at the Engineering Expo and Interview Day events.
