The Cooperative Education Program at the University of Pittsburgh offers you the chance to learn, earn, and graduate with a higher starting salary while maintaining status as a full-time student. This program is available in engineering, chemistry, and computer science.

Students participating in the co-op program usually complete two full years of academic studies prior to their entrance into co-op. After completion of the sophomore year, students alternate terms of classroom instruction with periods of full-time work experience. By utilizing summer terms, participating students typically gain three or four terms of valuable on-the-job training while postponing graduation by only eight months.
