Real-World Learning

In 1906, the University of Cincinnati founded the nation’s first-ever cooperative education program. Since then, UC and the College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) have been committed to providing students with real-world learning.

With ties to more than 1,200 employers, from industry to research opportunities, UC’s Co-op Program places students directly into the professional field. Engineering students complete five full semesters of co-op, gaining a year and a half of professional experience before they graduate.

With real-world experiences at firms and research centers across the country and around the world, students that graduate from CEAS have the have the skills and confidence to turn ideas into reality, solving tomorrow’s problems today and adventurously seeking out new challenges.
