Department Co-ops

Drexel University has been a pioneer in cooperative education since 1919 - operating one of the largest cooperative education programs in the nation.  Over 1,500 business, industrial, governmental, and other institutions "cooperate" with Drexel in offering students the opportunity to acquire practical experience in employment related to college studies.

Materials students at Drexel University have gained valuable first-hand experience at a range of companies in the U.S. and abroad and are among the highest paid co-op students at Drexel. In fact, many co-ops have turned into full time jobs after graduation.
