Co-Ops and Internships
Students alternate terms of full-time classroom study with terms of full-time, discipline-related employment. Typically, students will work at least two terms, thus gaining a year or more of work experience before graduation. The College of Engineering and Computing recommends that its students enter a co-op program after the completion of their sophomore year. The co-op experience is an extension of the classroom, providing for the application of knowledge gained in the classroom.
Each co-op has a defined beginning and end, and a job description with desired qualifications. Clearly defined learning objectives and goals are set at the beginning of the co-op, and may be updated as the student progresses. Employers will provide professional supervision for the student. The supervisor will provide and receive regular feedback to/from the Director of REP and Co-op Programs.
Internships integrate knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. The expectations and requirements for students and employers are the same as for a co-op experience; the difference is that an internship is generally offered to each student intern for only one semester of work.
For more information about these opportunities, to learn ways to find co-ops and internships, or to contact the director of these programs please visit the Co-Ops and Internships Web Page
Steps on reporting your internship or co-op can be found here.
eCore is short for electronic core-curriculum. The eCore program allows University System of Georgia (USG) students the opportunity to take courses within the core during a student’s collegiate career in an online environment. eCore courses are taught entirely online, except for the occasional proctored exam. eCore courses are designed, developed, taught and supported by faculty and staff from different institutions in the University System of Georgia. You can identify eCore courses by the G located within the section (ex. ENGL 1101 01G). Please visit the eCore website for more information, please visit the Georgia Southern e-Core Page or the eCore Website
