employer responsibilities
For the ESC 300 course, a section will be set up for the Department. The advisor for that Department will be the Instructor and will be responsible for ensuring students meet all the requirements, as well as will issue grade to the student.

Dr. Joseph Svestka,

The student will be required to contact his/her mentor to review the technical aspects of the Co-op Learning Objective Report and the position description. The mentor will contact the company directly regarding technical questions or collaborate with the Cooperative Education Coordinator to resolve any issues with the employer.

The mentor and student will identify other areas where the mentor could provide technical guidance or assistance. These areas may include advice on how to approach a problem or where to obtain information when the student is confronted with an assignment for which there has been no training provided. The mentor and/or the Engineering Cooridnator may also contact the employer, if necessary.
