Welcome to Valley Industry Partnership (VIP) for Cooperative Education!

The VIP Program is a unique partnership between leading companies and the Lyles College of Engineering and developed to provide internship opportunities for qualified students of Junior Level Standing. 

Program Goals

The Valley Industrial Partnership was formed as a cooperative effort between Fresno State and a number of local companies. The main goal of the program is to provide a rich, well rounded, educational experience for students majoring in computer, electrical and mechanical engineering or industrial technology. This is done by providing the students an opportunity to work in a real-world environment.

This program is very similar to the internship programs found in other disciplines. Internship programs help to give students a more an inside look on the demands of the profession while also being considered a part of the team. This compliments the work that they do in the classroom by giving the classes a real context.
