MDOT Co-Op Program

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.

Housing options will be determined after the application and interview process.

Applications Due:  March 30
Phone Interviews:  Week of April 7 and April 14
Final Decisions: End of April
