Nuclear Engineering Co-Op Program

Each year approximately 5% of the School of Nuclear Engineering’s undergraduate population participates in the highly competitive Co-Op program. These students are employed by companies such as Dominion, First Energy Corp. and Westinghouse. The School of Nuclear Engineering is always looking to partner with additional companies to provide more opportunities to its students.

Students may complete the 5-Session or 3-Session Co-Op program. Both programs rotate students on a semester basis between formal coursework and employment. These rotations are structured to accommodate courses that are strictly offered in Fall or Spring semesters. Regardless of the rotation, Co-Op students’ time-to-degree will increase to a 5 year commitment. It is important for Co-Op students to meet with their faculty coordinator and Student Services advisor early in the process to ensure any scheduling conflicts are promptly addressed.

 

Sample schedules for Co-Op students are shown below.
