Industry Practicum Co-op Program
Employers increasingly demand significant practical work experience in addition to sound academic knowledge. The optional eight-month Industry Practicum Co-op Program (IPCP) at the University of Rochester provides an opportunity for students to enhance their education by integrating their engineering and computer science knowledge with workplace practice.
Students in the IPCP participate in an eight month (a semester and summer) paid, full-time position with industry employers that allow students to get quality work experience directly related to their field of study. The students’ academic and IPCP experiences combine to produce a comprehensive learning experience that enriches their academic programs and adds direction to their career development.
