Co-op Program

The Co-op Program (co-op) is a structured method of complementing classroom education with paid practical work experience.  A cooperative experience, known as a “Co-op,” is either one continuous summer-fall OR one continuous spring-summer term. Co-ops may be eligible for academic credit (FSE399) for job experience directly related to the student’s major.  Cooperative education helps students make the school-to-work transition by providing real world experiential learning.

The program offers a number of benefits:

  • Gain extended valuable work experience with industry partners.
  • Develop practical skills and training which will aid in education and career preparation.
  • Co-ops can provide practical topics for projects, papers or theses, and establish a great professional network.
