OSU’s Co-op/Internship Program
A Co-op and Internship is a very important part of an
engineering student’s curriculum.
§ Employers are drawn to our voluntary co-op program because they know this career opportunity attracts ambitious students.
§ The students have 24-hour-a-day access to our cutting-edge web-based system, where they can view job opportunities and sign up for interviews.
§ We provide the co-op and internship opportunities – the students choose when and where they want to work.
§ Average salary for co-ops/interns is $11 to $15.
For more information on our co-op/internship program, go to http://career.eng.ohio-state.edu/.
Everyone loves to talk salaries! It is very well known that engineering and
computer degrees are some of the highest paying jobs available. The average salary offers reported since

The Pre-freshman and Cooperative Education Program (PREFACE) is a summer bridge program designed to provide pre-freshman minority students with an orientation to the freshman engineering curriculum at The Ohio State University and to expose them to the actual practice of engineering. The program is divided into two major components. The first is a six-week academic component in which participants attend classes while living on campus. The second is a six-week work component in which participants work with professional engineers on challenging technical assignments. For more information on this program contact the Minority Engineering Program at 614-292-6491.
The College Bound Summer Institute is a summer program for all pre-college students, six years and older. It is located at The Ohio State University, and the students are offered a well-rounded, individualized schedule of academic and recreational activities. University faculty and other qualified educators provide dynamic learning activities. The students learn first-hand the importance of a college education and are taken on tours to visit several departments, laboratories, learning/cultural centers, and athletic facilities on the OSU Campus. This year’s program offers a ten-week program (June 11 – August 17; Cost $1,000), an eight-week program (June 11 – August 3; Cost $800) and weekly programs (June 11 – August 17; Cost $125 each). To request an application and learn more about the program, go to www.csw.ohio-state.edu/collegeb.
The Engineering Summer Institute is a week long, non-resident program primarily targeting gifted high school students who are completing their sophomore year in high school and are interested in engineering. The students get the opportunity to learn about engineering communications through sketching and computer-aided drawing. They get to participate in hands-on laboratory experiments including one on gears, AC electricity, DC electric motors, and model rocket engines and airfoils. In order to learn about all of the different areas of engineering, the students get tours of some of the engineering departments with hands-on exercises. To learn more about the program, contact Carol Scott at 614-292-8357 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
