WHAT IS Work-based learning (formerly Co-op)?
Work-based learning is an academic class, formerly know as Co-op. Instead of attending “class” in a traditional classroom, students work with an employer in a position directly related to Electrical/Electronics for a semester. Students receive a grade for work-based learning like any other class required in their degree. Work-based learning is an elective in the Associates and Diploma programs and is required is some certificates.
Students must have a 2.5 GPA and be recommended by their faculty coordinator and the Workplace Learning Coordinator. Students must meet the programs eligibility requirements.
