COOPERATIVE EDUCATION AT CBE - BECOMING A CO-OP EMPLOYER
Co-op, short for Cooperative Education, is a program that allows students to alternate academia studies with relevant work experience prior to graduation.Additional courses are offered over the summer, so students have the flexibility to take a semester off (plus preceding or following summer and/or winter session). Students are employed for 6-8 months, full time, typically over one semester.
Co-op begins after students have completed their freshman and sophomore year in most cases, although this may differ. Depending on the co-op option, students can participate in the co-op experience typically either in the Spring or the Fall semester, although 2 consecutive co-op terms is also possible. It can also be combined with the summer/winter break.
