Co-op Program for Students

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 School of Business (BUS) and the School of Science and Computer Engineering (SCE).

Student Benefits

  • Gain experience in their field of study
  • Receive academic credit (can be elective)
  • Develop professional skills while you earn money
  • Build a network of industry contacts
  • Enhance prospects of a permanent job

Co-op Coordinator

  • Luisa Beck, Liaison to School of Science and Computer Engineering
  • Berenice Rodriguez, Liaison to the School of Business

The Co-op Coordinator assists Co-op applicants with resume and cover letter critiques, mock interviews, job search tips, and useful tools for a Co-op job search. The Co-op Coordinator maintains contact with enrolled Co-op students and their employers/supervisors through site visits each semester.
