Combining rigorous academics with a variety of experiential learning opportunities
Northeastern’s approach to education combines rigorous academics with experiential learning anchored by our world-renowned cooperative education program. Experiential learning encompasses our co-op program as well as research, global experiences, service learning, and student organizations.
Co-op affords students the chance to work in engineering practice prior to graduation. Through this program, undergraduate and graduate students gain hands-on, professional experience as well as a chance to build personal connections and contacts within their field of interest.
Undergraduate students can complete up to three co-op work experiences throughout their Northeastern career. As a result, students will develop an increasingly strong range of skill levels and aptitudes as they gain more knowledge and work experience. Co-op is offered to graduate students as well who participate in the second year of their program.
