College of Engineering, Technology, and Computer Science

Co-op is short for cooperative education, a three-way relationship between students, employers, and the university. This academic program gives you the opportunity to see how classroom theory relates to actual employment situations while you remain an IPFW student. You will earn a competitive wage and may earn academic credit. You can alternate semesters of full-time study with full-time employment or you can work part-time while attending IPFW.

The college's departments offer many options for cooperative education experiences. Regular co-op positions, work/study internships, and practicum positions are available, and many departments offer laboratory or teaching assistantships. You should check with your department for these opportunities.
