IDOT District One has two types of Co-Op positions available. One open to engineering students and one open to pre-engineering/engineering technology students. I have attached a copy of both job descriptions. The program requires 15 months of active employment, but how the student decides to break that down is more of a choice between the student and the school. The program is open to students with a student visa; however they should be aware that in order to work for IDOT on a fulltime permanent basis, they will need to be a US citizen or permanent resident.
