Build Your Talent Pipeline

Hire a School of Engineering co-op student to grow your business and diversify your perspectives.

Employers: Your Valuable Asset is One Interview Away.

Let us help you find your co-op asset. Every year in October and February, 60-70 employers join us at the University of Dayton as we host on-campus co-op interviews.

In addition, our year-round résumé referrals help you find the right fit for your needs.

Generally, co-op students stay with one employer for 3-5 work terms alternating semesters between work and study and at times work a double term. 

University of Dayton co-op students are reliable talents, ready to help.

Cooperative Education Interviews.

University Co-op Work Terms and Study Semesters.

  • End of August to mid-December
  • Beginning of January to the end of April
  • Beginning of May to mid-August

Students register for co-op at the University, which maintains their full-time student status. They do not earn credit for their co-op experience, but their work term record appears on their permanent transcript.

Once You Become a Cooperative Education Employer: We ask that you

  • Relate the co-op's work to their major.
  • With each subsequent work term, heighten the co-op's experience — new challenges, greater responsibility or rotation to a different department (if applicable).
  • Complete a performance evaluation about each student at the end of each term.
