Undergraduate Co-op

The Plastics Engineering Department is an enthusiastic champion of and leader in Cooperative Education at UMass Lowell. We believe that participating in co-op is instrumental in helping undergraduates to define their interests and future career paths. It advances their technical and business skills, increases their professional competence and confidence, and gives them a competitive edge in landing their first engineering position or gaining admission to graduate school.
