Professional Cooperative Education

We know many students learn best by doing.

The UMass Lowell Professional Cooperative Education program provides undergraduate students with the chance to systematically integrate their classroom studies with professional work experiences.  The Professional Co-op Program is a partnership among students, the University and employers and is administered by the UMass Lowell Career & Co-op Center.

A Professional Co-op is:

  • A three-phase academic program coordinated and supervised by Co-op Staff, in conjunction with faculty affiliated with each participating college
  • A structured, selective, voluntary program for students who are in good academic standing

Professional Co-Op Program Information Sessions

  • Thursday, March 28, 2019, time and location TBD
  • Friday, March 29, 2019, time and location TBD
