COOPERATIVE EDUCATION CERTIFICATE
If a student takes and passes EGR X for three semesters they will receive a notation on their transcript that indicates a “Certificate in Cooperative Engineering Education”
The following majors have created a “waiver” for an elective for any student who completes three experiential education courses: Biosystems, Chemical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, and Materials Science. Requirements vary depending on department, please discuss your options with your academic advisor. EGR 193 does not count towards this waiver for any department.
