The DeMatteis Co-op Program provides an integrated educational and professional working experience for undergraduates. It offers the opportunity for paid work in a company in a field related to the student’s degree program prior to graduation. This gives the student insight into how companies work, and what is expected of new employees, and therefore is a tremendous advantage for graduating students seeking full-time employment.
The Co-op program is available to eligible Engineering students after the first semester of their junior year. The program supports the spirit of the SEAS mission statement which is to “educate engineers and computer scientists who are creative, entrepreneurial, and prepared to tackle critical global challenges”. This is the pilot year for the program, which next year will be expanded to include computer science students.
- Students must possess a minimum 3.0 GPA overall. If in doubt, please check with us or a faculty advisor.
