  • Overview

    Are you a college sophomore studying electrical engineering?  If you’re interested in gaining valuable career training working with professionals in your industry, consider applying for BPMI’s Co-op Program!


    The BPMI Co-op Program gives participants the opportunity to work in their field of study while simultaneously pursuing their bachelor’s degree.  Co-op participation enhances a student’s academic training, gives them a better understanding of BPMI and the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program, and generally results in full-time employment upon completion of the program.  BPMI co-op participants will begin work at BPMI in the fall of 2019 during their junior year.  Co-ops return to the classroom during their second semester, work at BPMI during the summer between their junior and senior year, return to the classroom in the fall of their senior year, and then complete their third rotation at BPMI in the spring semester of their senior year.


    What You Can Expect:


    Close Mentoring - Co-ops are assigned a sponsor during their time at BPMI, who will assist in their day-to-day efforts and provide a more in-depth perspective of BPMI and work assignments.  This sponsor, along with a manager, will provide guidance and training on the specifics of BPMI’s business and operation.


    Training - Co-ops are provided with various training opportunities in several engineering areas including engineering, nuclear propulsion support operations, project management, and technical writing.


    Shipyard Tour - BPMI’s co-op coordinators take our co-ops to Newport News Shipbuilding in Virginia for a one-day shipyard tour.  This is a unique and exciting opportunity to see aircraft carriers, submarines, servicing facilities, and other areas of interest.  The tour allows our co-ops to gain a better appreciation of what the work at BPMI supports and how extensive the Navy program really is.
