Co-operative Education Program


The UHCL Cooperative Education Program (Co-op) is a planned learning process that integrates classroom studies with supervised work experience. Co-op students are enrolled in a graded course, offered for credit, which requires them to work in a paid position related to their current field of study.

Each school within UHCL has various experiential learning options, including internships. The Co-op program is separate from departmental internships and is available in the College of Business (COB) and the College of Science and Computer Engineering (CSE).

Student Benefits

  • Gain experience in their field of study
