What Are the Qualifications to Work for a Mechanical Engineering Co-Op?

To work for a mechanical engineering co-op, you must be a current mechanical engineering student at an accredited institution. Although students typically begin working in a co-op in their junior or senior year, there are no strict requirements for what age you must be to start applying for an internship. You should have demonstrated mechanical aptitude, be familiar with the basic protocols of engineering and design, and have a working knowledge of CAD and other design software. Additional qualifications include excellent communication, analytical, and organizational skills, as well as attention to detail.

What is the ZipRecruiter Compensation Estimate?

To help candidates find their perfect job at their desired pay rate, ZipRecruiter estimates the compensation range for job listings where the employer does not state a pay range.

ZipRecruiter Compensation Estimates are not verified by the employer posting the job, and the actual compensation range for an advertised position may vary, perhaps considerably, from the estimated range.
