Internships & co-ops

Students often ask us the difference between internships and co-ops:


Usually one summer or semester.

Occasionally two work terms.

Paid or unpaid, depends on industry / field.

Part- or full-time, per employer's needs.

92% of our 2013-2014 grads reported having career-related experience during college. Grads could check all types; 51% had paid internships; 23% had unpaid internships.

Cooperative Education:

Multiple work terms.

Work terms alternate with school semesters.

Work terms include fall & spring semesters.

Usually paid positions.

Full-time; 32 hrs/wk min.

Most recent two years, engineering majors comprised 83-92% of students enrolled in our co-op program; business majors comprised 3-6%.

Co-op is open to all majors but internships are more common for most other students.
