Gain Access to our Co-op Students

We have developed strong relationships with local companies since our University's founding in 1960, educating students in career-focused programs taught by faculty who work in the fields they teach. Companies have found success working with our Professional Career-Readiness Center to recruit skilled interns and employees.

Strengthening this important connection between educating students and preparing the future workforce, we established a cooperative education, or co-op, program. As a result, our students have completed co-op experiences with a variety of companies we have established relationships with throughout Pittsburgh and beyond.
