                                             THE CO-OP PROGRAM AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TOLEDO
The Engineering Career Development Center facilitates mandatory
cooperative opportunities for students in bioengineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, computer science and engineering, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering. Additionally, there are optional co-op opportunities for mechanical engineering technology, computer science and engineering technology, construction engineering technology, electrical engineering technology and information technology majors.
The College of Engineering at The University of Toledo in 1998 instituted a mandatory co-op program for all engineering science students that requires completion of at least three semester-long, cooperative-education work experiences as part of graduation requirements. The College of Engineering
is home to seven accredited baccalaureate engineering programs and five accredited baccalaureate and information technology programs. Our students have accepted positions in 44 states, as well as Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and 42 foreign countries. The Career Development Center has placed more than 20,000 co-op students with 1,900 employers at 2,500 employer sites. Nearly 40 percent of placements are with Fortune 500 companies. Choosing to employ a co-op student allows a business to select from a well-prepared pool
of employees.
