Core Philosophies • Engineering Education is our primary goal – and we do it well. • Students learn Engineering by Practicing Engineering – Learn by Doing, Hands-on • Co-op is an integral aspect of our program, and is mandatory • Offer sufficient options and electives to allow students to customize their education • Develop close relationship with faculty advisors • Develop the students’ foundation for successful careers and for successful lives Engineering Day
Academic Assistance Resources • • Freshman Seminar Faculty = Academic Advisor Faculty – Course Instructor Engineering Learning Center Learning Development Center KGCOE Office of Student Services Counseling Center Math Lab Physics Lab
Co-Op Info for Mech. Engineers • • Ms. Carolina Cizmar is the co-op coordinator for all Mech. Eng. students. Recently 355 opportunities posted for KGCOE last Fall 02 -1 • 127 Placements for Mech. Eng. students in Fall 02 -1 • 105 Placements for Mech. Eng. students in Fall 01 -1 Most jobs are in New York state and nearby areas. However, there are opportunities nationally and internationally. Wages for most students on their first or second co-op period fall between $8. 00 and $13. 00 per hour; this increases in later co-ops. For Fall 02 -1: Low: $8. 00/hr Average: $14. 59/hr High: $25. 85/hr Students should be flexible in looking for positions away from Rochester and away from home! The Co-op office helps M. E. Students with – Group and individual job search assistance – Arranges for employers to visit RIT campus – Lists available co-op and full time positions – Access to a library of job search resources – Orientation Sessions
