School/Work Paths

Although these three paths are typical plans that most students participating in the Cooperative Education and Internship Program (CEIP) follow, individualized study/work plans can alsobe developed. These individualized plans require the pre-approval of the faculty coordinator, the department chairperson, the director of the CEIP, and the associate dean of the College of Engineering.
