At Case Western Reserve University, our strong ties with regional, national and international industries play a pivotal role in shaping the big outcomes of our engineering students. 

From day one, you'll be working on real-world problems, collaborating with industry professionals, and developing solutions for actual clients. In fact, 98% of our engineering students participated in at least one experiential education activity, including internships and co-op experiences with leading global firms (co-ops can lead to earnings of over $20,000 for two semesters of work). 

But don't just take our word for it, here are a few of our students who have benefited from our industry connections.

  • Kaitlyn Reyes, a May 2023 grad who majored in biomedical engineering. “I accepted a full-time offer with Procter & Gamble as a Research & Development Engineer after two successful internships with them!”
  • Sebastian Saintignon, a fourth-year civil and environmental engineering student, who interned at BioLargo Engineering. “Working as part of a team promoting the exchange of ideas maximizes progress and potential. The company has a culture of encouragement and knowledge sharing, which enables me to learn more and grow as an engineer and a young professional.”
  • Chase Breting, a fourth-year polymer science and computer engineering student, interned with Tesla. “I am extraordinarily grateful for this opportunity. CWRU has set me up for great success and I’ve gained high-level battery cell knowledge, a vast network of colleagues and resources, and many new practical skills that I am eager to use in my studies and career.”


At CWRU, hands-on opportunities set our engineering students apart, equipping them with the skills, network and understanding to thrive in the competitive job market.

Through our robust internship and co-op connections, you'll have the opportunity to work alongside industry leaders, applying classroom concepts to real-world challenges. Are you ready?
