Explore the many exciting opportunities that cooperative education offers both students and employers. Together we will develop a pipeline of globally competitive engineers and scientists by engaging students early and effectively equipping them with the knowledge, techniques and skills demanded in an interdisciplinary world.
The success of this academically focused program is built on diverse, high performing students; the challenging, real world work opportunities provided by co-op employers; and the student-centered, team approach of the co-op staff. The combination of rigorous classroom study and experiential education creates a candidate that is second to none.
Cooperative education is first and foremost a powerfully effective educational process. Co-op is built on a theory/practice model of work integrated learning that unfolds through five increasingly progressive work terms. Co-op helps students confirm their choice of major, clarify their interests and career goals and earn a full-time salary.
Stevens values the participation of employers in this process. Companies hire co-op students for their ability to contribute to current operations and their employability upon graduation. Co-op employers and supervisors enjoy the challenges and rewards of contributing to the development of the next generation of engineers and scientists. Most co-op employers seek to hire students semester after semester which is a strong testament to the success of the program.
Meet the Stevens Co-op Staff in the Career Center, 6th Floor, Wesley Howe Building. We look forward to speaking with you!
