Adam Jacobwitz and NeuroLife project team at Battelle Memorial Institute
Each year, ECS hosts our Cool Co-op Contest, and a winner is chosen in each of the following categories: Perk, People, and Projects. Last year, Biomedical Engineering student Adam Jacobowitz won the Project contest for his incredible experience working on the NeuroLife project at Battelle Memorial Institute. Below, he describes what made his internship so unique and special.

To me, as an outsider, the work that was being done on the NeuroLife project at Battelle Memorial Institute looked like it really did come straight out of a science fiction movie. The NeuroLife project is a joint study between Battelle and the Ohio State Medical Center that allows a quadriplegic … Read More

DePuy Synthes accepting the Employer of the Year Award from Engineering Career Services.
Each year, ECS formally recognizes employers providing our students with outstanding and unique experiences through the student-nominated honor of “Employer of the Year.” A winner is determined based on the student’s written nomination and the company’s recruitment and hiring activities.
The 2018 Employer of the Year goes to DePuy Synthes!
Below are excerpts of the nomination submitted by Biomedical Engineering student Kaleb Cantrell, who completed multiple co-op rotations with the organization.
“At the beginning of my work term, I was assigned an engineer as my mentor. The mentor took me under his wing, and allowed me to join in and assist him on the projects he was working on. This included weekly meetings, walking me through step by step on terminology I did not understand in meetings, and taking the time to make sure I … Read More

While we know that you probably aren’t thinking about us during your summer break, we have been spending a lot of time thinking about YOU! ECS, along with the other career offices at Ohio State, has been preparing the past several months for the launch of Handshake, our new job search system. As of TODAY (June 5), all students have access to this new platform which we hope you will find intuitive and easy-to-use. Can you tell we’re excited?
Handshake connects you with internships and jobs from thousands of employers. Some perks of handshake include:
- Discover jobs you are truly interested in. Handshake shares job recommendations based on your interest, major, and skills. You can explore collections of jobs just for you. Pro Tip: “Favorite” jobs. Handshake’s smart software will start showing more similar jobs once it learns what you are most interested in.
- Stand out to employers …
