Students based at either campus are eligible to participate in the co-op program through NC State after attending a co-op orientation. The Cooperative Education Program typically delays graduation by a year but provides valuable industry experience and the opportunity to earn money working as an engineer to help with tuition and other expenses. See more information more information.
Undergraduate co-op students alternate semesters of full-time study and full-time work experience, preferably for a minimum of three alternating semesters. Options 1, 2 and 3 in the table below are the best possible ways BME students can work alternating semesters within their schedule and the BME curriculum. Students take classes at least one summer to meet the alternating semester requirement.
