This is a part-time co-op program that allows students to work and attend school during the year.

Based on the co-op assignment, some engineering positions may require the ability to physically access a wide variety of work sites, including those aboard ships under various stages of construction or overhaul, including the use of vertical and inclined ladders, and may involve limited kneeling, stooping, standing, etc.
