Undergraduate Co-ops

Putting Theory into Practice

A co-op is full-time, temporary employment in your field of study that enables you to apply classroom learning in a professional work environment. All undergraduate day students must successfully complete two co-op semesters in order to graduate.


  • Your co-op experiences will be directly related to your field of study, allowing you to tie your coursework to concrete knowledge developed in the workplace.
  • Over 40% of graduates are offered post-graduate full-time employment by their co-op employer.
  • During your co-op experiences, you earn income and do not pay tuition, allowing you to save toward future semesters.
  • If your co-op is local, you can choose to live on campus during it, maintaining close connections to friends and Wentworth activities.
