Co-ops & Internships, Biomedical Engineering

At Widener, an undergraduate biomedical engineering student can take advantage of the cooperative education program and still graduate in four years. Co-ops and internships allow students to gain valuable, real-world practical experience in their engineering discipline, while earning a salary. In addition, students have the opportunity to receive full-time employment from their co-op or internship employers upon graduation.

 "Working at Independence Prosthetics-Orthotics Incorporated, I received a hands-on, well-rounded career experience. I learned everything from patient intake and insurance verification to product manufacturing and patient fitting. During my co-op, I also had the opportunity to attend research symposiums and shadow graduate student research at partnering universities. My co-op experience reinforced my decision to pursue a PhD in biomedical engineering with a focus on patients with lower limb prostheses."

 "My involvement in the co-op program has been a very positive and rewarding experience. Working at GlaxoSmithKline as an engineering co-op student exposed me to validation engineering and root cause analysis in the pharmaceutical industry. My co-op was a great addition to engineering classes and fueled my interest in research, project management, and becoming a biomedical engineer."
