The Cooperative Education Program is a professional development education program that allows students to participate in a year-round schedule that alternates professionally related work experiences with classroom coursework. Co-ops are made possible by industry partners willing to host co-op students for this valuable experience.
The College of Engineering and Applied Science offers an excellent curriculum with hands-on, service, and discovery learning opportunities. CU students have strong engineering and team skills combined with a strong work ethic. Students who participate in co-ops frequently choose to continue their employment with their co-op employer after graduating.
Co-op experiences are paid by the employer and result in academic credit. Co-op students receive a certificate of participation or written acknowledgement as well as an entry on their transcript for each co-op experience.
