Cooperative Education Work-Experience Program
It is called “Cooperative Education” because the program establishes a three-way relationship between the student, the college, and the employer. This structured relationship allows the student to create short-and long-range career goals and to recognize his/her progress by establishing three measurable learning objectives for the semester. Cooperative Education provides a practical learning model for the students and helps them prepare for their future careers through the integration of the on-the-job learning experiences and academic classroom lessons. By integrating both study and work, each area should become more relevant, interesting, and rewarding.
