SEAS Co-Op Program

The inclusion of a co-op program allows students in Hofstra’s School of Engineering and Applied Science the opportunity to take advantage of the University’s close proximity to New York City, with its global commercial, financial and business reach. This program is based on the philosophy that learners learn best through active engagement in meaningful activities.
Students become eligible for practice-based professional learning upon achieving junior status, and are accepted into the co-op program based on criteria such as GPA, recommendations, successful interviews with our partners, etc.  Participation is not mandatory and depends on the student’s personal educational goals. For more information, click here.

Get a taste of the co-op program below:
I am working as a Construction Superintendent for Structure Tone, a general contractor in the city. The skills I have learned in three months are invaluable towards my career. Construction management was something that never crossed my mind as a career choice and now it has become my only career choice...I strongly recommend this program to fellow students because the experience gained has helped me in ways I never thought were possible.

-Robert Kollmer, student 

The ability to ask coworkers for advice has proven more beneficial than any class or Google search I have previously used. My project manager took hours out of his time to teach me the proper way to create drawings and how to present them professionally. My proficiency in AutoCAD has increased tenfold and I am now confident in the work I produce.

-Edmond Kirby, student

...we have embraced Eddie Kirby not just as a temporary Co-op but as an employee of Walden. Eddie will be returning to Hofstra as a full time student in January and will continue to work for Walden part time and it is our hope to hire him full time upon his graduation. 

-Joseph M. Heaney III PE, Principal at Walden Associates

While far from over, my Co‐Op experience has been nothing short of magnificent. During the application process I viewed it was a great opportunity to not just gain experience, but to get a better understanding of what direction I would take in the broad world of engineering. While this proved to be exactly what the Co‐Op was about, I never could have expected the amazing experience I would have. I entered a field that I didn't even know existed and stumbled my way into a company that is truly the best of the best

Financial Aid Workshop

The Office of Student Financial Services at Hofstra University conducts Financial Aid Workshops from time to time, the most recent of which was held last night, January 7, 2016. These workshops are an opportunity to have all of your financial aid questions answered. Below are some photos from last night's workshop, where financial aid officials guided high school seniors and their parents through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) so it can be completed at home with ease. In addition, a presentation was also given on federal and state grants.
