The Wentworth Institute of Technology Center for Cooperative Education and Career Development prepares students and graduates to effectively enter the workplace. The Center for Cooperative Education and Career Development team is dedicated to preparing, advising, educating, and connecting our students, graduates, and alumni. The Center for Cooperative Education and Career Development manages the Institute’s Cooperative Education (co-op) program, allowing us to build strong relationships with our students and employers. The co-op program allows us to understand the unique hiring needs of our employing organizations to provide quality assistance to recruit our talented students and alumni for co-op and full-time positions.
Wentworth students are unique: they are required to complete two full-time co-ops in their field of study to be eligible for graduation. Therefore, our graduates have real-world experiences to be able to enter their field with a short learning curve. The on-boarding of a Wentworth graduate is less expensive and less time-consuming than a non-Wentworth graduate. Our students are also unique because of their backgrounds.

We are aware of the importance of cost-effective recruitment practices in the hiring of permanent employees and the impact of co-op on improving retention rates among permanent employees. Co-op employees are custom-trained for future permanent employment. Our department hopes to build positive relationships between the Institute and the business community for the enhancement of student learning.
The Center for Cooperative Education and Career Development provides employers opportunities to recruit our talented co-op students and college graduates. These resources include Wentworth’s on-line posting system, on-campus interviews, employer information sessions, our career fair, portfolio review evenings and our mock interview day.
