CO-OP Work ExperienceOverview
Cooperative Work Experience provides a beneficial three-way partnership among the employer, the students, and the college. Through the Co-op Education program, employers have access to a pool of highly qualified students, who are eager to take on challenging assignments.
- Provides the opportunity to apply classroom learning to
practical problems on the job.
- Allows students to work with professionals in the field
they are preparing to enter.
- Students in these programs are generally more committed to
their academic fields.
- Co-op students and Interns are often exposed to advanced
technology and equipment in a learning environment that is not
available on campus.
- Students learn the competitive nature of the job market and
what is needed to prepare for the best career positions.
- Students get the competitive edge in the new graduate job market.
Students in these programs may earn college credit for working in a job directly related to their field of study. Co-op Ed and Internships can be full or part-time, temporary or regular, paid or non-paid positions at or near the entry level in any given field.
Both of these programs are successful ways for students to integrate their educational experience with paid work experience as they explore various career opportunities early in their college careers.
Co-op Education is an educational concept that relates the classroom to the employment community. Students with a designated major, vocational, or career interest are assisted in locating employment that relates to their classroom studies. Students approved in employment are eligible for academic credit based upon the completion of structured learning objectives.
Co-op Education is available in all divisions and is applicable to liberal arts as well as vocational-technical programs. To enroll for the Co-op Ed program, students should do the following:
- You must have a job. If you need a job, see the student
- Complete the Cooperative
Work Experience Agreement
- Make an appointment with the Cooperative Education Director (Karl Hutchings)
- If you qualify, you will be registered for the program and assigned to an advisor.
DSU's internship program offers students hands-on learning in a professional environment that is directly related to their degree. Employers have an opportunity to connect with motivated students, and it is well documented that companies around the world often recruit from their pool of talented interns.
