University of Cincinnati’s Division of Professional Practice: Co-op Planning Students Available for Upcoming Semester, August 21-December 22, 2017.

Urban Planning  Co-op Students Available

The University of Cincinnati’s Division of Professional Practice continues a long tradition of having students alternate between academic and professional practice terms.  It is an educational philosophy which was introduced to academia at the University of Cincinnati over 100 years ago.

The Bachelor of Urban Planning (BUP), a five-year professional degree program, is one of the most well established and respected programs in the United States and has been accredited by the Planning Accreditation Board for 35 years. The BUP program provides students with essential physical, economic, sociological, computer, graphic design, analytical and communication skills for the practice of planning in the complexities of the urban and metropolitan communities, with emphasis on place and place-making.  It is also the only studio based program which requires at least a full year of cooperative education.

In support of the program, the University’s Division of Professional Practice strives to develop relationships between our planning students and top national planning organizations in both the public and private sectors.  Our students bring a great deal of interest and enthusiasm to the job, and are prepared to work on GIS mapping, policy planning, working with the public, 3-D modeling, census analysis, and physical planning.  They are taught to work digitally as well as by hand.

 

Typically, our students work on an alternating schedule, spending a total of four or eight months at one agency.  The program is designed to fill a full time position as the internships are timed to provide year round coverage.

Joining the program and hiring a student is a simple process.

  1. Call (513) 556-0399 or e-mail Professor Frederick Lutt, AICP, ASLA frederick.lutt@uc.edu to let him know you have a position available and give him a brief description of the job opening and your planning agency.
  2. We will send resumes of students who are seeking the opportunity

You will screen the resumes, interview candidates and make hiring decisions.
