What Is Co-op
Drexel University has been a pioneer in cooperative education since 1919 – operating one of the largest cooperative education programs in the nation. Over 1,600 business, industrial, governmental, and other institutions "cooperate" with Drexel in offering students the opportunity to acquire practical experience in employment related to college studies. Drexel students can also explore entrepreneurial, research, national, and international co-op experiences. Visit the undergraduate and graduate pages to learn more.
