Co-op

Cooperative education is a full-time, paid, rotational, field-based experience. Students do not take academic courses while on rotation in the field. Between field rotations, students return to complete their academic studies as full-time students.

Benefits of a co-op:

  • Gain real-world job experience
  • Integrate theory learned in the classroom with practical applications
  • Establish a relationship with an employer
  • Increase your post-graduation competitiveness
  • Earn a competitive salary while gaining experience
