Engineers Without Borders Co-op Program We educate socially and globally responsible engineers. So it’s no surprise that many students are active in the Marquette chapter of Engineers Without Borders. The national organization helps people in underserved areas and countries improve their standard of living. Our students have ongoing projects in Mississippi to help people rebuild from Hurricane Katrina; in Guatemala to help communities build solarpowered water-pumping systems; and in the Dominican Republic to help locals build water filtration systems. Want to practice what you’re learning and get paid for it? Apply to our Co-op Program, a learning and training experience that combines full-time engineering work with full-time engineering study. You will be matched with a company that is willing to help you apply what you’re learning in the classroom to real-world work in your field. Students in all six of our degree programs can participate and are eligible to start a co-op after their sophomore year. Our students also get involved with the Health, Environment and Infrastructure in Latin America initiative — HEILA, for short — and go to El Salvador, Guatemala or Honduras. You can earn up to $3,400 per month during your first co-op term, and many companies hire their co-op students after graduation. The program adds a calendar year to your studies, but you only pay tuition for four academic years. To read about a trip our engineers took to Guatemala, go to the Marquette Magazine website: magazine/lagarrucha.

It’s an amazing learning experience — I’ve Alternate a semester of classes with a semester of work. Each semester of co-op is worth one credit, and you must work a minimum of three alternating work terms.
