Cooperative Education/Internship Program Information

Cooperative Education/Internship Program

The Cooperative Education/Internship Program is designed to provide experienced-based learning to New Mexico Tech students through employment in practical, curriculum-related work assignments structured to meet students interests, abilities, and aptitudes while meeting employers' staffing needs.

Employer Partnerships:

Become an employer in the cooperative educational/internship program and play a major role in the educational process by offering work assignments to a New Mexico Tech Student.

How Cooperative Education/Internship (Co-Op) Program Works:

The Cooperative Education/Internship Program is a three-way partnership among the employer, the student, and the University. First, employers complete the Cooperative Education/Internship Program Agreement which is a written agreement to partner with New Mexico Tech (NMT) in the Cooperative Education/Internship Porgram process.

Second, employers connect with the Career Services Office to post announcements to students.

Once co-op students are selected and offered co-op jobs, employers refer those selected students to the Career Services Coordinator for paperwork processing. Employers should know that in order for Career Services to certify a co-op, the following information is needed by the Career Services Coordinator:

     1. Cooperative Education/Internship Program Employer Agreement Form

     2. Detailed job description from employer. (Co-op jobs must be directly related to the student's major in order to be a certifiable co-op.)

     3. Copy of offer letter from employer, including:

          -Proposed beginning and ending day/month/year of work assignment

          -Proposed work schedule in hours-per-week

          -Confirmation of salary

Student Eligibility

     The student must:

          -Be a full-time, degree-seeking student in good standing at New Mexico Tech

          -Student's field of student must be closely related to the job for which he/she is being considered

          -Student must be in good academic standing with New Mexico Tech (i.e., at least a GPA of 2.7 undergraduate and 3.0

           graduate on a 4.0 scale), and have completed 30 (undergraduates), 15 (graduate) semester hours. Some employers may

           set higher standards for applicants (transfer credits can not be considered for this requirement, all credits must be completed at

            NMT).

          -Student's must be accepted to the Cooperative Extension/Internship Program

          -Student's can not accept a co-op position during their last semester before graduation

          -Be eligible to seek legal employment in the United States or satisfy requirements for practical training in accordance

           with the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (except in cases where work is located outside the US).

          -Student must meet the employer requirements (i.e., academic, security, clearance, etc.).

2. Student Work Schedules

          -Cooperative Education periods are as follows: spring, summer, fall semesters or a combination of spring and summer or

           summer and fall semesters.

          -Cooperative Education/Internship Program duration periods can be approved for 3 months, 5 months, 6 months, and

           and 8 months. Co-op programs are not to exceed 8 months.

          -Student's who may be eligible for an 8 month co-op program are graduate students, and on a case-by-case basis.

          -The employer and the University acknowledge that the employer retains the right to establish and administer

           personnel policies and procedures within the organization.

          -The employer may terminate the student at-will in accordance with its applicable employment policies.

 

Students, in order to be considered for the Cooperative Education/Internship (Co-Op) Program you must first apply by submiting required documentation to the Career Services Coordinator, 1-2 months prior to the start date of the desired co-op.
