Cooperative Work (COOP)
In this course the student will spend a period of 28 weeks of industrial employment in industry. Students are required to write a detailed formal report on their experience and give technical presentation. Evaluation by the employer will be counted towards the grade given for this course.
The course is designed to meet the demand of engineering graduates who are more trained toward practice. The course provides students with intensive on-job training in which they can relate to the theoretical knowledge learned in the classrooms and laboratories. Upon graduation, the graduates can engage more rapidly in the design, construction and operation of chemical processes.
The outcomes of COOP training program is to help the students to:
- Acquire on-job work experience before graduation
- Recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments.
- Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
- Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
- Identify, formulate, and solve real engineering problems by applying principles of chemical engineering, science, and mathematics.
- Apply engineering design skills to design and simulate chemical and physical processes.
- Communicate effectively with others in industry; and give presentations and write reports.
- Write technical reports.
