About Co-op

Working part-time at the local pizzeria while in school isn’t a bad thing, but unless you’re majoring in restaurant hospitality, you might be more interested in finding a job that’s going to give you the real-world experience you’ll need to be successful after graduation.

Our students don’t just push papers or run errands for the boss – employers participating in the Co-op program are looking for students who want to make a real and significant contribution in the work they are doing.

“Co-op has been the best decision I’ve made in college. It not only allows me a break from semesters of tough classes, but it reinforces my education with hands-on experience.” — Nicky Seabrook, Chemical Engineering Major, Biogen Idec

If you join the NC State University Cooperative Education Program, you’ll have the opportunity to:
