The Schaefer internship and co-op program provides opportunities for students to apply classroom methodology to hands-on modeling and design. The student’s Schaefer co-op advisor, mentor and the assigned project team coordinate to ensure the learning experience is relevant and challenging. Successful internships and co-op rotations may lead to full-time employment, as evidenced by our present staff of dedicated and talented structural engineers and modelers, many of whom were students here themselves.¬†Generally, structural engineer internships are welcome for summer hire; co-op positions are offered year-round based on semesters.
