We believe that project-based learning and experience in industry or a research lab are crucial enhancements to an undergraduate engineering education. Projects are integrated into many of our courses. All Sweet Briar engineering students must complete an engineering internship.
Engineering students work across industries applying different engineering techniques and disciplines. This experience often helps students secure excellent positions after graduation.
Students fulfill the co-op requirement through the course ENGR 378, generally during the summer. Engineering faculty and the career services office can help students find opportunities that advance their professional goals.
