Internships & Co-ops
Internship or Co-op — what's the difference?
Internships provide real world job experience between academic sessions. Typically, most interns work at C&S during the summer months.
Co-op employees are enrolled in a cooperative education program at an accredited four- or five-year college or university, pursuing a bachelor's or advanced degree. You can work any time of the year, including part-time, and can be enrolled in either a technical or non-technical discipline. Most managers prefer co-ops to work a six to seven month period, although there is flexibility within this requirement.
