The UGA engineering co-op program is growing. The policies and procedures are being worked out and will evolve over time. Also, the companies and organizations that participate in our program will change over time as well. So, please check this web site regularly to be made aware of any changes or modifications.
The UGA Engineering Cooperative Education Program (co-op program) will provide a
structured means for engineering students to gain valuable and relevant experiential learning
through a work experience while growing as a professional in their chosen field. We seek
to establish partnerships with organizations and firms from a wide range of areas, including
industry and manufacturing, engineering design and consulting, research laboratories,
governmental agencies and professional organizations.
The partner organizations that participate in our program will operate under very general
guidelines set by UGA and that apply to each organization. In addition, some firms and
organizations may require customized agreements per their own internal requirements. An
individual firm may participate in both the UGA co-op program and hire students as interns for
individual semesters or periods of time, as their company needs dictate. However, if a student
begins a relationship with the partner organization as a co-op, it is expected that they will
continue to work under the guidelines and schedules of the co-op experiential learning program.
