COEN 3930 - Engineering Internship/Co-op
Spring 2019 / Summer 2019
Students enrolled in this course participate in a pre-approved internship or cooperative education program with an employer that allows them to explore the relationship between theory and practice and demonstrate evidence of significant learning (e.g., academic assignments and employer/sponsor evaluations). Pass/Fail only. Up to 3 credits may apply towards BS degree program's Free Electives (even if student has multiple enrollments in this course and/or COEN 4950). Students should contact the CEAS Extracurricular Programs Manager for more information. Minimum 2.75 cumulative GPA is required.
ECEN 3360 - Digital Design Laboratory
