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 College of Business and the College of Science and Computer Engineering.
- Gain experience in their field of study
- Receive academic credit (can be elective)

- Luisa Beck, Liaison to College of Science and Computer Engineering
- Berenice Rodriguez, Liaison to the College 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.
Individual appointments and group presentations are available.
