All undergraduate programs in the Gleason College have a cooperative education requirement. Co-op generally starts after completing two years of academic study and ends so that the last semester attended is in residence. Co-ops may be one or two semesters in length and at any company that satisfies the program’s requirements. The Office of Career Services and Co-operative Education and academic advisers can provide students with information concerning the co-op experience. The average salary for microelectronic engineering co-op students is $17.00 an hour.
