Opinion: Is MECOP worth it?

The Multiple Engineering Cooperative Program (MECOP) is an Oregon State-based program and a major boasting platform for the engineering school at University of Portland. For those of you unfamiliar with the program, it allows students in some engineering disciplines to have two six-month long internships incorporated into their degree. Students in the program split their senior year into two years. Summer and fall semesters are spent working, and spring semesters are spent at UP.
