How can Ohio replicate a sustainable program statewide? Low hanging fruit: High profile institutions in urban settings: -Abundance of job opportunities -Likely to attract new employers to area -Student reputation likely to attract out-of-town jobs Challenges: Low profile institutions in rural settings: -Dependent on few local employers -Less likely to attract diverse employer growth in area -Parallel co-op, tailored solutions
How can Ohio replicate a sustainable program statewide? A.Identify schools whose leadership see a potential in experiential learning B.Offer training to these institutions: 1.Executive level / Dean Level 2.Department Head / Director Level 3.Advisor Level C.Have schools develop effective locally founded programs in teams (Ex: WACE training) D.Require commitment on all organizational levels E.Award seed money to establish placement office and program structures F.Allow institutions to charge fees that cover costs G.Monitor that quality has been met and that fees are used appropriately.
Micah Whitt Civil & Environmental Engineering The project is projected to improve conditions experienced by Cincinnati drivers by reducing accidents, slow downs, and driver frustration. Its precisely the Civil part of Civil Engineering that I love and drives me to learn more. By 2015, everyone should be getting to school on time!
I cant go into any details because of government restrictions; General Electric and Rolls Royce proprietary rights. First Engine to test with 3,000+ sensors installed. Brian Kodrich Aerospace Engineering Defense Contract Management Agency
Lance Kelly Mechanical Engineering The Injury Biomechanics Research Lab (IBRL), a nationally recognized center for trauma research. investigating the relationships between human injury and physical mechanical properties Transportation Research Center Inc.
Walter Lubbers Biomedical Engineering Im a pre-med student, so I took a job in the Cardiothoracic Surgery Lab at Cincinnati Childrens Hospital.. I also was the primary author of a journal article on our research, and had the opportunity to give a presentation on the study at an international conference on pediatric cardiac surgery.
Crystal Kuznik Digital Design Procter & Gamble is by far one of the best places to work in Cincinnati Procter & Gamble takes care of their co-ops by providing a housing bonus on each paycheck
Bradley Jonas Materials Engineering There is nothing hotter then standing next to a 1,500 degree Celsius electric arc furnace as 150 tons of molten steel is poured into a ladle with sparks flying everywhere.. My co-workers and I are working on installing a 130 million dollar super-furnace which will allow us to melt and tap 150 tons of scrap steel in less then 45 minutes.
Stacie Merz Computer Science I went to Boston with a friend from high school and saw some of the historical sites Delta Air Lines Having flight benefits is awesome and allows for many opportunities to learn about the world that I only wish I had more time for.
James Ott Fashion Design I cut, assembled, and hand sewed the chiffon / organza flowers I will never forget the perk of being able to attend my first New York runway show knowing I had several pieces of my work parading on the models in front of me.
Laura Myer Industrial Design I soon became very aware of my own customs and sayings, which I had never given much thought to, as they didn't translate in this new world Within one week I went from not knowing where I was going on co-op to being on a plane flying to Hong Kong. Hong Kong Polytechnic University
That kind of effect on others makes work very rewarding! John Jaskiewicz Architectural Engineering Technology I had the opportunity to work on the construction documents for Cincinnati Childrens hospital. It's accessibility to the highway makes it very unique, since there arent many emergency hospitals that you can see from the interstate, making it very easy to find.
Elizabeth Dixon Bio Medical Engineering I am researching water quality in Tanzania for six months. I assist a UC environmental engineering graduate student, and our focus is collecting data and gaining a better understanding of sand filters, a point of use water treatment system.
