Plastics Engineering – Summer Co-op Track

Undergraduate Plastics Engineering students who are enrolled in the formal Summer Cooperative Education Program should follow the Plastics Engineering “Undergraduate Curriculum: Summer Co-op Track”. Like the standard track, the summer co-op track has a large number of required science, engineering and materials courses, along with a number of elective courses. The elective courses include both technical electives and general education electives (Arts and Humanities and Social Science courses). In addition, co-op track students seek employment in the Plastics Engineering field in the summers following their junior and senior years. Students that successfully complete two rounds of co-op receive technical elective credits (3 credits).  Students that do not complete two rounds of co-op in a satisfactory manner must complete a technical elective in order to satisfy the program credit requirement.  Students also have the option to do semester long co-ops but the specific course sequence to be followed by the semester co-op student will be developed on a case by case basis with guidance from the student's academic advisor and a Career Services Co-op Coordinator.
