Drexel’s cooperative education program allows our Dragons to gain the professional experience they need to succeed within their chosen fields after graduation. Through Drexel Co-op, students can gain up to three six-month, full-time professional work experiences. Even better, the majority of undergraduate co-op experiences are full-time and paid, and those that are both carry a gross median six-month salary of over $20,000.

Preparing for a Changing World: Co-op is the Future of Work
Over 125 years ago, Drexel University's founder, Anthony J. Drexel, had a vision to create an institution that would empower every student to graduate from Drexel ready to begin their career. Drexel Co-op allows us to meet this
challenge. This innovative program prepares our Dragons to meet the challenges of the modern workplace by allowing them to learn within it. Through co-op, students gain up to 18 months of résumé-enhancing
experience working alongside industry professionals and test-drive career options – all before graduation.

What if You Knew? Co-op at Drexel
As an integral part of the Drexel education, our cooperative education program empowers students to hone their professional skills and work alongside industry leaders while pursuing their passions. After going on co-op, students return and serve as valuable resources in the classroom as they share their enhanced perspective with everyone around them — our faculty members then work to integrate this new knowledge into their instruction.
Since 1919, Drexel's world-renowned cooperative education (co-op) program has prepared our students for the future. Drexel Co-op provides professional employment experience, giving students the opportunity to explore and
build a career before they enter the workforce.
