(e)Summer Training or Coop Training

Students taking the summer training option must spend 8 weeks of training in a in a facility approved by the department. This can be done in a summer term after completing a minimum of 85 credit hours. Each student needs to submit a report and make an oral presentation. The ISE 399 (Summer training ) is a zero credit pass/fail course.
For coop option, students must register the Coop training course ISE350 after completing a minimum of 85 credit hours, and have a minimum cumulative and major GPA of 2.0. Students are required to join a 28-week long industrial training program approved by the department. A total of 9 credit hours is allocated to ISE 351 as it replaces three courses namely, Senior Project ISE 490, one ISE elective and one free elective.
