Jordan & Skala Co-op Program

Cooperative Education Program

Jordan & Skala Engineers has an extensive co-op program and we are always looking for new candidates to join us. The Cooperative Education Program enables us to hire undergraduate students to alternate semesters of fulltime study with semesters of full-time paid work. By working with us for three or more alternating semesters, students gain at least a year’s worth of valuable, professional work experience in their major. These rotations typically begin during a student’s sophomore year, although some students begin working as early as the freshman year or as late as their junior year.

The Co-op program gives continuity of experience that enables students to build on previous work terms. Co-op responsibilities increase over time as they gain more experience with our organization and as they progress in their coursework.

Our desire is that after graduation our co-ops will become full-time employees of Jordan & Skala Engineers.

What does a co-op experience look like at Jordan & Skala?

Jordan & Skala Engineers works with students from Cooperative Education Programs across the country to give them a jump start in our industry and competitive advantage in the job market! Our co-op students work alongside professionals in their degree fields as well as in interdisciplinary teams giving the students a rich experience in the consulting engineering field.

Semester one

The student will become acclimated to the consulting engineering workplace, legal codes, design concepts, and improve skills in the daily utilization of AutoCAD and Revit. Students are assigned a mentor to work with learning through observation, instruction, and experience. The students are encouraged to discuss skills and goals with their mentor in order to maximize their experience with Jordan & Skala. Our mentors’ doors are always open for questions. We strive to take our co-ops to site visits and client meetings throughout rotations. As a co-op student you will also be able to network with other co-op students and industry leaders, attend lunch and learns, and participate in company events.

Semester two

The student will continue to become familiar with codes and calculations, work more independently on projects in AutoCAD and Revit, and accompany an engineer to project site visit.

Semester three

The student will work more independently, will implement knowledge from previous semesters to review shop drawing submittals, design layouts, and complete calculations. In every semester, we encourage our co-op students to ask questions and learn from the professionals they will work alongside.
