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, they can earn a salary while doing so, as over 80% of positions are paid and carry a gross median six-month salary of over $18,000.
While on co-op, you'll have the opportunity to develop relationships with individuals and organizations across our constantly growing community of employers and partners, allowing you to build a robust professional network of your own. Through co-op, you'll graduate not only with the skills you need to succeed, but with the connections that will help you build a career path.
