Co-ops and Internships

Many students are interested in obtaining valuable experience working with other fire protection engineers in part-time employment, summer internships or co-op positions. Students participating in these programs earn a salary, gain professional experience, integrate theory into practice, and confirm career choices.

The Department office maintains a set of contacts with prospective employers for each of these types of positions. Contact Dr. Peter Sunderland, Associate Professor, for more information at 301-405-3095 or pbs@umd.edu.

The Engineering Co-op & Career Services Office helps students find co-op, internship, and summer engineering positions. Students participating in these programs gain professional work experience, earn a competitive salary, make invaluable networking contacts, integrate classroom theory into practice, and confirm their career choices.

Our services for students include: on-line job listings and interviews, employer presentations, walk-in career advising, resume critiques, mock interviews, career development workshops, an electronic newsletter, and career fairs.
