- The student must have completed at least 36 credits in their engineering program and maintain a GPA of 2.5 at the time they apply for the co-op program.
- The student must complete at least 9 additional semester credits after the first co-op period and maintain a GPA of 2.5 to continue with the second co-op period.
Co-op positionsThere will be two ways to arrange for the co-op:
- Through the official NJIT Career Development Services (CDS) - Companies will be recruited by CDS which would provide an on-line "Wanted Ads" booklet of available positions with descriptions and salary ranges, and CDS will organize on-campus interviews.
- By direct contact between student and company (which requires final approval from CDS and department co-op advisor.
Co-op curricular requirementsStudents must also complete ENGR 210 (Career Planning Seminar for Engineers) as a prerequisite to joining the co-op program. ENGR 210 provides engineering students with multidisciplinary and career planning skills in a seminar environment with emphasis on career planning, resume writing, and interview skills.
No other classes or curricular requirements will be imposed by participating in a co-op, except for a written report at the end of each co-op period and short on-line monthly reports. The grade for ENGR 310 and ENGR 410 will be either satisfactory (S) or unsatisfactory (U).
The Co-op course will appear on the transcript, and the name of the company that the student works for will appear on the bottom of the transcript as part of a note.
