ENGD 138  Cooperative Education Engineering  (1-8 Units)  

Cooperative Education is a key element of Victor Valley College's comprehensive approace to career development. Cooperative Education is a 16-, 12-, or 8-week course that enables students to receive college credit for paid or unpaid work opportunities. This course helps students gain valuable on-the-job work experience while providing practical education, best practicies in professional development, and academic guidance through the course of their work opportunity. The combination of practical experience and curricular development empowers students to be more competitive, efficient and valuable eployees upon completion of this program and/or their academic program trajectory. The course is ideal for students who are cross-training at their current worksite for upward mobility or seeking career changes, as well as those looking ofr entry-levle occupational training through work-based learning experiences such as through an internship. Cooperative Education Transforms community businesses, industries, and public agencies into expanded educational training laboratories. Credit is awarded on the basis of learning objecti ves completed and the number of hours the student trains. Students must create/ complete new learning objectives each semester they enroll. Students may  utilize their present work sites. More details are available in the Cooperati ve Education Office, (760) 245-4271, ext. 2281. The office, located in the Academic Commons, is open Monday-Thursday, 8:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m., 2:00-6:00 p. m., and by appointment.
