 Co-operative Education

Co-operative education is a formal part of the curriculum that integrates classroom study with workplace experience. When you are enrolled in co-operative education, you are able to find jobs in your field more easily, attain higher starting salaries upon graduation, and have lower student debts than those who have not participated in a co-op program.

Co-operative Education is a bridge between the employer, the student, and the academic institution. It benefits everyone involved. The employer benefits from the latest theories and fresh ideas from the academic world, the institution gets practical input from the professional community, and the students receive hands-on experience in their chosen field of study.
