Software Engineering Graduate Co-op Program
Starting with Spring 2010, the Cooperative Education office will be providing services to Software Engineering (SSW) graduate students. This means that if you are interested in having a cooperative education job while you are completing your graduate work in SSW, it is now possible.
- Complete a semester (or two semesters for international students) of study in Software Engineering prior to a co-op work term. (International students must apply two semesters before they intend to co-op. For example, a student who began Stevens in F09 could apply in F09, and co-op in F10.)
- 3.5 GPA in courses taken toward your SSW graduate degree.
- Complete at least 3 SSW graduate courses toward your degree.
- Provide a letter to the SSW Program Director outlining your goals in pursuing cooperative education during your graduate work.
- If you are international, provide a completed CPT form from the International Student Advisor
The deadline for providing the letter to the SSW Program Director outlining your goals for cooperative education is November 12 th
, 2009 . Please address the letter to Linda Laird as indicated below.*

A student may take no more than two graduate classes while on co-op assignment. A student may choose to participate in a second co-op work term after completing an additional semester of full-time study, however student participation in co-op work term cannot be the reason for a program extension. Co-op graduate students may not be eligible for graduate assistantships, on-campus employment or receive support from the college or university while on a co-op work term.
