When you invent something, it just means more to you.
We invented cooperative education in 1906. For 114 years, we have been perfecting it – adjusting to world wars, economic depressions, and pandemics.
Our college is different in that co-op rotations - students working fulltime in jobs at NASA, P&G, and many more - are mandatory and follow a specific schedule. Students in each first-year class will co-op at the same times, returning to campus to share notes, apply their professional knowledge to the classroom and lab, and vice versa.
In a year marked by surprises and challenges, our co-op program has grown stronger, with new remote-work opportunities born out of necessity. Our graduates are hired because companies know they are already accustomed to rolling with the many changes of the professional world.
