The UMass Lowell Professional Cooperative Education program provides full-time 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.
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.
- An opportunity for students completing the full cycle of the program to earn technical elective credit.
- A structured, selective, voluntary program for full-time students who are in good academic standing.
