Engineering Cooperative Education (ENCP)

ENCP 6000. Career Management for Engineers. 1 Hour.

Designed to introduce graduate engineering students to the cooperative education program and maximize their learning by seeking to help them be more intentional about learning in co-op and in the transfer of that knowledge and experience to and from their academic program and throughout their entire careers. Offers students an opportunity to develop career goals and be able to identify and justify what they need to learn through their co-op experience and entire careers. Offers students an opportunity to engage in readings, exercises, and discussions to acquire the tools to be able to continually assess what they already know, what they think they know, what they need to know, and what they would like to know in relation to achieving their career goals. Prereq. Restricted to MS engineering students in computer systems engineering, energy systems, engineering management, information systems, sustainable building systems, and telecommunications systems management.
