Co-ops

In recent years, our students have fought "food deserts" with an urban farm in Lowell, engineered composite materials for Tesla Motors in California, studied Cuba up close and even researched polar ice in Antarctica. Your path could lead anywhere. Find out more.

Brianna Atwood '20 Plastics Engineering

Brianna Atwood came to UMass Lowell to study plastics engineering – but she’s done so much more. The honors student started a volunteer program that connects UML students with a local school. She has also participated in the professional co-op program, working on fire-resistant seals for airplanes.

UMass Lowell just keeps getting better – everything improves. The campus itself is awesome, and I really love the city, too.
