This program allows students to gain valuable professional experience, explore different industries, develop skills, and build a strong network of contacts for future career opportunities.

In addition to the co-op program, students can participate in internships, research projects, service-learning, study abroad programs, and other hands-on experiences. These opportunities provide practical application of classroom knowledge, fostering critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and personal growth.
