You have five different co-op positions to learn what interests you in your field. The best part? We're ranked in the top 5 for co-op (US News) and students earn a total of $61,000 on average, funding your degree and gaining experience.

"The co-op program drew me to UC even before stepping on campus. UC offered a way to help me pay for college and would help me find a job after graduating. Being able to gain the experience while still in school was an opportunity I couldn't pass up.”
