Co-Op & Internship Opportunities

Cooperative education is an opportunity for students, employers and educators to partner in providing an enriched and personal educational experience for our community.

Co-ops prepare our graduates to enter the workforce with pre-professional experience in, and proven knowledge of, the degree area.

  • Experience working in your career field
  • Apply classroom learning and skills at the workplace
