Cooperative Education / Internship Program

    The Cooperative Education and Internship Program combines academic studies with practical, on-the-job experience enabling students from a variety of majors to apply theories and skills learned in the classroom to real work situations.  For employers, it provides numerous cost-saving and staffing benefits, as well the opportunity to support their communities and influence the educational process.
      
    A cooperative education student works 300 hours in a paid position.  See majors offering co-op. 
    An intern is unpaid and works a total of 150 hours during the semester.  See majors offering internships.
     
    All placements are concurrent with academic semesters
