More than 90% of all Auburn students who complete a co-op position are pursuing their degree in the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering. In order to better serve these students, the Office of Cooperative Education has joined the Engineering Office of Career Development and Corporate Relations, or CDCR, in the Brown-Kopel Center. The merger firmly establishes three distinct teams within the CDCR infrastructure: corporate relations, cooperative education, and student career development and coaching.

“The cooperative education team is a welcome addition to the College of Engineering, and we remain committed to continuing to serve our students, and the entire campus community, through their co-op expertise,” said Christopher B. Roberts, dean of engineering. “Our Office of Career Development and Corporate Relations has been a vital force in connecting our students with employers and equipping them with the skills they need to be successful in the workplace. I look forward to seeing how this dedicated team continues to serve our students in the future.”

The cooperative education team serves an average of 450 students per year, representing all engineering disciplines plus students in the McWhorter School of Building Science and the Harbert College of Business. More on this move can be found here.
