Professional Co-ops

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. Visit the Career Services & Cooperative Education Center to learn more about co-op opportunities.

Co-op & Internship Experiences

  • The professors are all fantastic and the alumni really support the school.

    For plastics engineering major Alexander Rick, a co-op position at Burton Snowboards was a dream job, a perfect alignment of his personal passion and professional goals.
