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.
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.
