My school requires 3 six month internships or "co-ops" as part of a five year program. Nothing prepares you better then working in real jobs.

Civil Engineering , Class of 2003

Six month co-op three times throughout the five year program. Fantastic professors. Concentration is your desired area in the fifth year. State of the art technology in every lab. Plenty of opportunities to get help if needed and to work with the TAs and professors. Regular scheduled mixers and networking events. All students are encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities.
