The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) offers an opportunity for students from historically black colleges and universities who have completed their first, second, or third year of college to do a paid summer co-op with them. The program helps students understand whether civil engineering is a match for them and they gain exposure to the University of Michigan’s College of Engineering.
Housing is available on and/or near the university campus. Students commute to Brighton, MI, a 30-minute drive from the university’s campus.
A program overview, position description, and application form can be found on the MDOT website. If, after reviewing the job description, you have questions about the co-op, please contact James Jackson at JacksonJ15@michigan.gov or call 517-750-0433.
