I. Drexel Undergraduate Co-op

Cooperative Education at Drexel enables full-time undergraduate students to alternate periods of classroom theory with professional experience prior to graduation. Participation in co-op is available in most academic programs. Successful completion of the cooperative education experience is a graduation requirement for students enrolled in a co-op degree program. Students have the opportunity to gain 6 to 18 months of career-related work experience integrated with their coursework. Cooperative education helps students explore and confirm their career choices by assisting students in several areas of career development, including self-assessment and career exploration. Through co-op students develop confidence, professionalism and a sense of purpose. Students are expected to take advantage of every possible opportunity to observe different aspects of the workplace and to gain experience.
