University Membership

MECOP has partnered with multiple universities in Oregon to assist college students in completing two, six-month internships that apply, reinforce, and expand on lessons learned in the classroom while minimizing the number of terms their degree gets extended. Participating companies also provide feedback to university participants regarding the performance of their students. The goal is to create an open dialog between the industry and academic world to assist with the continual improvement of curriculum and create work ready graduates.
