Course Activities and Design

The student is responsible for interviewing for and finding an acceptable Co-Op site and must register for the number of credits equivalent to the number of hours that he/she will work. The student, site supervisor and FMT instructor develop a set of up to five goals and activities specific to the equipment at that site that the student will accomplish during the Co-Op experience. The student then shadows and works with an experienced technician.
 

 

Outcome Assessment Strategies

Assessment is accomplished with a written check list and commentary form filled in by the site supervisor at end of the student€™s hours of work. It is reviewed by the Co-Op instructor and the student. A letter grade is then assigned.
