If you are contemplating co-op, you should consult with Prof. David Hess in advance of your assignment. If you are pursuing a dual major, you should
also meet with your other advisor in advance and follow the guidelines for co-op in your second major. Note that a co-op experience can throw the studios out of sequence. Please discuss the problem with your advisor so that you understand what the plan will look like for your final year.
Careful planning of co-op assignments and rescheduling of academic coursework is indispensable to a timely and successful completion of the academic program.
At the completion of your co-op assignment, you must submit a Co-op Work Report (a brief executive summary of 3-5 pages). It should describe the major task of the assignment, the extent of your participation in the project, and the specific engineering contribution to it. Please note that The Department of Science and Technology Studies does not grant academic credit for the co-op experience.
