UMass Lowell's Professional Cooperative Education program provides undergraduate students with the chance to systematically integrate their classroom studies with professional work experiences.
The co-op program is a selective, voluntary program for sophomore, junior and senior students in good academic standing. A partnership with the university and employers, students in the Manning School of Business and selected majors in the Colleges of Engineering and Sciences participate in three to six-month paid experiences.
