Can I do a co-op and still graduate in four years?

Maybe. You’ll need to plan ahead. If you come in with credit for calc I and some other courses then you might be able to get this to work. You will also need to take thermo along with the junior year ChE classes, which is challenging.

Here are the important things to know:

  • If you are done with the required math and CM 2110 Material and Energy Balances then you can take CM 3110 Transport & UO I and CM 3215 Fundamentals of ChE Lab at the same time as CM 3230 Thermo.
  • You can take CM 3240 Separations at the same time as the usual spring junior classes. This will give you 13 credits of required junior-year ChE classes, which is challenging. However if you are a strong student and very motivated then it’s doable.

If you are interested in working out a schedule like this, then make a rough draft and bring it to your academic advisor to review together.
