HANDS ON EXPERIENCE THAT WILL GET YOU HIRED

A co-op is full-time, temporary employment in your field of study that enables you to apply classroom learning to professional work experience. At Wentworth a co-op must be 32-40 hours per week and generally is completed between the first day of classes and the last day of finals during the semester you are working.

Wentworth offers one of the most comprehensive cooperative education (co-op) programs of its kind in the nation. A co-op is full-time, temporary employment in your field of study that enables you to apply classroom learning to professional work experience. Unlike most schools, co-op at Wentworth is a requirement: all undergraduate day students must successfully complete two co-op semesters in order to graduate.

You will have plenty of support to help you achieve your professional goals. Your first step is to complete the seven-week Co-op Institute seminar. Additionally, your dedicated Co-op + Career Advisor will work with you on résumé writing, job-search strategies, and interviewing techniques. We also provide annual career fairs, a mock interview event, online job search tools, and on-campus recruiting.
