Cooperative Work Experience
COOP EX 208-1
Engineering & Industrial Technologies CWE 6
The Cooperative Education course is designed to provide employment skills as a concurrent and integral part of a student's educational program in a number of career areas. Students are placed in an approved employment situation mutually agreed upon by the student, college staff, and employer, with the opportunity to apply knowledge and gain exposure to work methods unavailable in the classroom. College staff members develop with each student a written educational plan, including performance-based measurable objectives. Guidance and supervision are regularly provided by college staff members who visit students at work, confer with the employer, measure progress, and work out any concerns. Follow-up seminars with the staff may be scheduled for up to two hours per week. Students are assigned a job directly related to their academic program/plan, which will enhance educational goals without infringing upon course or program/plan obligations. Academic credit for part-time employment (up to 20 hours per week) is awarded on a ratio of 1 semester hour of credit for each 5 hours of approved employment per week, with a maximum of 4 semester hours credit for the work component. Academic credit for full-time employment (21 or more hours per week) is awarded on a ratio of 1 semester hour of credit for each 10 hours of approved employment per week, with a maximum of 4 semester hours of credit for the work component. If offered in conjunction with the work component, 1 semester credit hour is awarded for each seminar hour per week up to a maximum of 2 semester credit hours. In total, variable credit may be acquired depending upon the number of hours on the job and the extent of follow-up seminars, up to a maximum of 6 semester credit hours. Writing assignments, as appropriate to the discipline, are part of the course.
