Undergraduate Cooperative Education

The Cooperative Education Program at Rensselaer is an integration of academic and industrial study and experience. By combining a work period outside the classroom with normal course work, a student becomes aware of the value of his or her academic area.

Each year about six or seven Mathematics majors are in the program.

Typical employers are:

  • Western Electric
  • Mitre
  • RCA
  • IBM
  • MCI
  • General Motors
  • Harrison
  • Prudential Insurance
  • Citicorp
  • Ciba-Geigy  

The Co-Op Program is a convenient way for students to obtain first-hand knowledge of a company and to see how their academic programs would relate to a permanent job position.

The employer also benefits by having on-the-job evaluation of a prospective employee and by attracting good students who, after graduation, may return as permanent employees at higher than starting salaries.

Sample schedules for Co-Op during the second Summer, the third Fall and the third Summer:
