EMPLOYERS: WANT TO BE A CO-OP & CAREER PARTNER?

Both students and companies benefit from UA's Engineering Co-op and Placement Program. Students receive an incredible, paid, real-world engineering experience, and companies fill in-demand positions with skilled, student engineers who work hard and are eager to learn.
