The University of Delaware’s Civil and Environmental Engineering Cooperative Education program is directly tied to the department’s mission to ensure the “education of our students to their fullest potential.”
The Co-op program provides an educational opportunity that integrates a student’s academic and career interests with paid, productive work experience at cooperating organizations both locally, nationally, and globally.
During the Co-op experience, the theories taught in the classroom can be applied to practical work situations, and students gain knowledge and skills, which will enhance future coursework and better prepare them for successful careers in the engineering profession. In addition, the program offers students the opportunity to clarify their academic focus and test their career interests and goals, while still completing their degree in four years.
