Recruiting Engineering Talent

Thank you for your interest in recruiting engineering students from the University of Georgia’s College of Engineering!  Please select your recruitment interest from the list below:

For Co-Op Opportunities:

The UGA Engineering Cooperative Education Program (co-op program) provides a structured means for engineering students to gain valuable and relevant experiential learning through a work experience while growing as a professional in their chosen field.  We seek to establish partnerships with organizations and firms from a wide range of areas, including industry and manufacturing, engineering design and consulting, research laboratories, governmental agencies and professional organizations. 

Outcomes and Expectations:

For the Partner Organization

  1. A contact person shall be designated within the organization who will serve as the primary channel for information concerning the overall relationship between UGA engineering and the organization.
  2. The organization will provide one designated supervisor for the UGA student during each co-op semester.  This supervisor can change with different semesters, but it is expected that the same person will be in charge for the entire semester.
  3. The organization is expected to provide work that will be meaningful and educational for the student and their career growth.
  4. The organization agrees to provide feedback on the student’s performance during each semester no later than the last day of classes for that particular semester of work.
  5. The organization is understood to have no obligation to hire the student after their graduation, but it is hoped that the experience gained by both parties may lead to future employment if business conditions warrant.
  6. The organization will be asked on an annual basis to provide feedback to the UGA co-op program coordinator on the overall program’s impact and suggestions for future improvements.
