Q: What is a co-operative education (co-op) program?
A: A co-operative education (co-op) program combines academic studies with
professionally supervised work experience to provide real-world educational
training. A co-op is a student who is actively enrolled and receiving credit /
recognition through their school for the work experience gained.
Q: What is an internship?
A: Similar to a co-op program, an internship provides professionally supervised
work experience to provide real-world educational training. An intern does not
receive credit / recognition through their school for the work experience gained.
Q: Who is eligible for a co-op?
A: All students who are enrolled full-time and are in good academic standing are
welcome and encouraged to apply.
Q: When do you hire interns and co-ops?
A: We typically have positions available for Manufacturing, Engineering, and
Quality interns and co-ops starting in January, May, and September, with some
flexibility to those dates. E-mail us if you have questions on our availability.
Q: Why is having formal career-related work experience before graduation helpful?
A: Experience in your field of study gives you a competitive edge and makes you
more marketable. Students with professional intern and co-op experience are
usually more successful at getting job offers upon graduation.
Q: I'm interested in more than one co-op or intern position that you have available. Can I apply to more than one?
A: Students are welcome to apply to whichever positions they are interested in.

Anthony, Quality Engineering Intern
As an intern with Burpee MedSystems, I gained hands-on experience in a quality control environment while interfacing regularly with individuals of all levels from all aspects of the manufacturing process. Burpee's diverse customer base and knowledgeable personnel provided an excellent introduction to the many facets of medical device manufacturing.
