The Graduate Cooperative Education Program combines classroom study with periods of paid professional employment directly related to your area of study, research interests, and career goals.
In the graduate co-op program, you'll apply and learn new scientific, engineering, and business approaches and help your sponsoring organization achieve its short-term objectives. Available with two tracks, your co-op experience can serve as a starting point for a research project or augment your on-campus research with complimentary experience.
