Students have the opportunity to have an international co-operative education experience. This is a structured program that allows students to learn a second language and gain international experience through an overseas co-op assignment. The University of Cincinnati is one of the few universities in the United States which offers such a program. Placements are available in Germany, Japan and Latin America.
