Agreed! I attended Northeastern University where COOP is an integral part of the curriculum. I had the opportunity to work both in the office and in the field. I feel some experience in both of these areas is crucial for young engineers. There is probably as much difference between the classroom and the office as there is between the office and the field. What may look good in the office on paper may not work or be understood in the field. The more exposure to design and construction, even if running errands for the office or estimating in the job trailer, the better rounded engineer you will be. Bruce C.

I agree with all the other engineers. As a graduating Cal Poly ARCE (Architectural Engineer) student, I feel that getting some engineering experience before graduation is very important. I had worked with a structural engineer for a couple of years, and i am currently working with an architect doing structural calculations. I feel that my work experience has made me comfortable with design and also very familiar with the building codes. There are a lot of students that I am graduating with that have not even been inside a engineering office, although they are straight A student, they don't know one thing about putting a detail together or how to draw and read a framing plan, but when you ask them to prove a strucutural theory they can fill up a board with equations. I think it is important for students to spend their summers working for an engineers office, even just running errands or answering phone calls. My two cents worth Marlou ARCE 98 Cal Poly, SLO
