Real World Experience as a Student:

Many Herff students land permanent jobs before they even graduate. That's because Herff helps you build a strong résumé while you are in college. We have a national reputation for providing our students with relevant engineering work experience through a paid Cooperative Education/Internship Program. U.S. News & World Report ranks the UofM in the Top 10 universities with successful internship programs.

How Herff Jump Starts Your Career in Engineering:

The Tennessee Society of Professional Engineers (TSPE) equates three semesters of co-op coursework as equivalent to one year's worth of professional engineering work experience.  Students with co-op credit or internship credit on their academic transcripts get higher starting salaries.  Herff engineering co-op/internship positions are paid positions with salaries well above minimum wage.
Many of our industrial partners provide on-site training for Herff student interns because they hope to hire them permanently upon graduation.
