 OUR CO-OP CLOSE-UPS PROVIDE AN UP-CLOSE AND PERSONAL LOOK AT STUDENTS FROM A RANGE OF CO-OP PROGRAMS.
EVAN EHLERS
DREXEL UNIVERSITY “For my third co-op at Drexel, I completed an entrepreneurship co-op, where I was awarded $15,000 in seed funding and given office space in
Drexel’s on-campus startup incubator. Over the course of this six-month experience, I launched a food distribution nonprofit called Sharing Excess. Thanks to this amazing opportunity, I now have funding, a team of ten, and have delivered more than 30,000 lbs. of food to local hunger relief organizations.”
FIORENZA HERRERA DIAZ
MIAMI DADE COLLEGE One of seven exceptional Miami Dade College students awarded the coveted Jack Kent Cooke scholarship for 2019, Fiorenza Herrera Diaz plans to
continue her education at a four-year institution focusing on international economic development. Ultimately, she dreams of working for the United Nations or World Bank. “Miami Dade College has helped me throughout my journey by believing in me and investing in my education,” Herrera Diaz said. “I was fortunate to attend MDC.”
SAMUEL HERTZ
PRECISION CASTPARTS “I have completed several co-op rotations with PCC since 2016. My first co-op rotation was at the PCC Special Metals facility in
Huntington, WV. My second and third rotation were at the PCC TIMET facility in Toronto, Ohio. My experiences as a co-op with PCC were challenging, impactful and rewarding. They provided insightful, real-world experiences that I will be able to carry with me as I continue my career with PCC in the Management Development Program.”
ALEX JULIANO
MERRIMACK COLLEGE “While pursuing my undergraduate civil engineering degree at Merrimack College, I have completed two 8-month co-ops and two summer
internships at four firms in the Boston area: Eaglebrook Engineering & Survey, Weston & Sampson Engineers, Stantec, and Haley & Aldrich. Through my experience, I had the opportunity to work on major construction projects and work along many creative and intelligent colleagues and mentors. Had I followed the traditional path, I would have never ended up where I am today.”
YOSHIHIRO KUSHIMA
KANAZAWA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY “I stayed in Thailand for 4 months for a Co-op program. In the first few days, I visited SUT (Suranaree University of Technology), and I learned
some Thai language and I spent time with students. After visiting SUT, I started an internship and I worked to solve internal problems at Western Digital. Specifically, I worked to solve employee’s office syndrome. It was a great experience to interact with students from various countries and participate in activities in an English-only environment.”
NOPPHARAT LEAMKAN
SRIPATUM UNIVERSITY “My cooperative education program was at ITMO University, Saint Petersburg. I had an opportunity to develop “Modcanix” or AR game. Its content
was about Automotive Engineering which suited for first-year mechanical engineering students. The program provided a special experience in learning more skills such as IT skill, coordinated skill, and communication skill. Working with advisors and foreign colleagues, I had an opportunity to learn new approaches that made me think more logically to accomplish goals.”
