Drexel is a comprehensive global research university with a unique model of experiential learning that combines academic rigor with one of the nation’s premier cooperative education programs.
Founded in 1919, Drexel’s cooperative education program was one of the first of its kind, and it continues to be among the largest and most renowned. Drexel Co-op provides professional employment experiences for students, giving them the opportunity to test-drive a career before they enter the workforce.
The benefits are obvious—during their time at Drexel, students can participate in up to three different co-ops, which equals 18 months of professional work. A Drexel Co-op experience connects them with industry leaders and brings their cooperative education experiences back into the classroom. Because of this, Drexel students graduate having already built a professional network and are positioned to lead the workforce of tomorrow.
