Co-op Education: Learn on the Job

Co-op is a real-world experience that will get you hired. It's as simple as that. Working with some of the largest, most innovative companies in the world, our students have the opportunity to earn while they learn and jump-start their careers. As a required, two-semester program within a four-year degree, it's one of the most comprehensive co-op programs in the country. 

A co-op is full-time, temporary employment in your field of study that enables you to apply classroom learning to professional work experience. At Wentworth a co-op must be 30-40 hours per week and generally is completed between the first day of classes and the last day of finals during the semester you are working.

Co-ops + Careers advisors works with student to find placement opportunities.
