Hosted through the Case School of Engineering, the Cooperative Education Program at Case Western Reserve University is a voluntary program that provides you a unique opportunity to gain hands-on, paid experience relevant to your course of study.
Co-op is a full-time, paid work experience. Co-op is non-credit, however, proper course registration maintains your full-time status at CWRU.
While Post-Graduate Planning and Experiential Education can help you find and prepare for a co-op experience, it is important for you to consult your faculty advisor or co-op faculty advisor prior to applying to the co-op program. You are encouraged to start the job search process at least one semester prior to your planned co-op.
