All KGCOE students are required to complete co-operative education work experiences as an integral part of their BS degree. Please see the chapter on Cooperative Education for full details about this aspect of the degree. Students must complete nominally one year of co-operative education work experience as a degree requirement. Students are scheduled for four semesters of co-op, to achieve at least 48 weeks of work experience. Many students exceed the one year minimum requirement.
General Requirements For BS Degree Certification
