OSU-Cascades Energy Engineering Management Program Accepted into MECOP as Pilot Program

Oregon State University - Cascades  Energy Engineering Management (EEM) program was recently accepted as a pilot program in the Multiple Engineering Cooperative Program (MECOP), a competitive engineering internship cooperative. 

MECOP is an internship alliance driven by Oregon's engineering universities (Oregon State University, Portland State University, and Oregon Institute of Technology), their student bodies, and industry partners.  It is a business-education partnership supported by an annual assessment of member companies and requires significant industry interaction with each university and its students. Continual improvement occurs as each university adjusts its curriculum on recommendations made by the industry partners.   The goal of MECOP is to provide engineering work opportunities to upper level engineering students at two different member companies, and upon graduation, to supply the Northwest with the best engineers who can be contributors in their chosen fields.

MECOP internships allow students to gain valuable practical experience at competitive salaries for companies throughout Oregon and Washington. While extending the length of time to obtain a B.S. degree in EEM, MECOP internships offer the dual benefit to participating students by helping to finance the final two years of a college education.  EEM courses are scheduled to allow six-month internships over the spring and summer academic quarters.

OSU-Cascades EEM students can apply now for internships that will take place as soon as this spring.
