INTERNSHIP FOR CREDIT
The College of Engineering offers a one credit course for students during their intern or co-op experience called EGR X (formerly EGR 393). The co-op semesters enable students to thoughtfully work out a “working lifestyle” that can include continued learning, sensitivity to professionalism and professional ethics, and a habit of thoughtfully assessing current events. You can direct students HERE for more information.
