               OUR CO-OP CLOSE-UPS PROVIDE AN UP-CLOSE AND PERSONAL LOOK AT STUDENTS FROM A RANGE OF CO-OP PROGRAMS.
TOTSAPORN SANGPRAKONG
SRIPATUM UNIVERSITY
“I completed a four month co-op at Cyberrex Design Co., Ltd, the award winning virtual reality and augmented reality studio. I worked on a 360 degree website and augmented reality for Enfagrow Future Brain Expo. This project gave me a new perception of applying the knowledge of interactive media design and technology with the client’s content that was the great experience that I could not obtain from the classroom.”
UDOMSIN SEECHAMPA
SURANAREE UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY / KANAZAWA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY, JAPAN
“I completed my cooperative education program at Kanazawa Institute of Technology, Japan. I was assigned to do a project named Ninja Robot for Farmland Management. The project aims to utilize advantages of the Internet of Things technology to manage greenhouse environment for agricultural products. Not only did I gain knowledge throughout the project, but I was also given a chance to improve myself in many ways. This is a once-in-a-lifeIme experience that I will never forget.”
CODY SPOON
THE UNIVERSITY OF TOLEDO
“As a chemical engineering student at The University of Toledo, I have had the privilege to enhance my education through multiple co-op experiences. Working with Husky Energy for one semester, and Marathon Petroleum for four semesters, I have developed the skills and professionalism necessary to add value in the workplace, while simultaneously solidifying the concepts I have learned throughout my coursework. As I prepare to enter the workforce as a full-time engineer, my co-op experiences allow me to proceed with confidence.”
DRACO WU
THE HONG KONG POLYTECHNIC UNIVERSITY
“I fully capitalized on Co-op programs in world-class institutions in Hong Kong, namely Societe Generale CIB (Digital Analyst), EY (Risk Consultant), and Volkswagen Financial Services (Digital Consultant). Working with colleagues globally, I applied hardcore skills to real engagements and contributed innovative ideas in the midst of corporate digital transformations. The invaluable experience fostered my strategic thinking on Fintech implications. PolyU CAPS offered a seamless suite of services, helping me land on my dream internships.”
