Schools with co-op programs like Northeastern University?

I'm super interested in Northeastern because of their co-op program that integrates work experience with study. Are there other universities out there with similar programs that can help me gain professional experience while I'm still in school?

Absolutely, there are several universities known for their co-operative education (co-op) programs. One of the most prominent ones is Drexel University in Philadelphia, which offers a variety of co-op programs across different fields. Just like Northeastern, their co-op program is a significant part of the university experience and can last for up to 18 months over the course of your degree.

Another institution known for its co-op program is the University of Cincinnati, which actually claims to have the first co-op program in the world. Their program integrates what they call 'Professional Practice' as an essential part of the education process, offering experiences in business, industry, and government. Additionally, Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) offers extensive co-op opportunities, particularly for engineering students.

While not all universities label their practical experience programs as 'co-op,' many others offer similar work-study opportunities or internships that provide substantial work experience alongside academic studies. Be sure to explore the career services offerings at any institution you're considering to check if they provide structured work-integrated learning opportunities.
