This paper outlines a co-operative engineering curriculum involving a "pre-co-op work/experience" immediately following graduation from high school. The University of Tennessee has found this an effective means of attracting and motivating more minority students to study engineering. The paper outlines the program including a typical work/study schedule and includes comments of participants about their experiences in the program.
