Cooperative Education Program

302 Cullen College of Engineering Building 1

The Cooperative Education Program (Co-op) is a documented internship that appears on a student's university transcript. Co-op experience enables students to receive valuable career train ing/education with pay in the student's major field of study either part-time or full-time. Most students participate in Co-op at the start of their junior year but all student levels are eligible to apply to Co-op after completing a minimum of two semesters within their major field of study, including graduate students. Students are required to submit a work report at the end of each Co-op semester to document receiving work experience in their major field of study and to receive a letter grade on the transcript. Co-op positions are available in most college disciplines, especially engineering, business, and natural science and mathematics.
