    ND has no coop program. At least it didn't last year when my son was checking out Engineering / coop programs. Northwestern however, does have a great coop program. *

    * Full Disclosure - My D is a former coop student of the year runner up.

    Go check out IIT. It's a low-profile school ratings-wise, but has excellent architecture and engineering programs with strong job placement record. Architecture school's professors are mostly practicing architects in Chicago, which is important for internships and first job placement. Many Chicago architects and engineers graduated from here, but placement is national and alumni network international. Very international student body. Quick subway ride (station on campus) to loop. Much better school and location that UWMilwaukee/Marquette.
