                                                 THE CO-OP PROGRAM AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TOLEDO
The Shah Center for Engineering Career Development facilitates mandatory cooperative opportunities for students in bioengineering, chemical engineering, civil and environmental 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 13 accredited baccalaureate engineering programs, including
seven engineering science degrees, five engineering technology degrees and information technology. Our students have accepted positions in 45 states,
as well as Puerto Rico and 42 foreign countries. The Shah Center for Engineering Career Development 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.
