Cooperative Education and Internships

NJIT supplies cooperative education and internship students for major companies such as AT&T, Johnson & Johnson, MTV Networks, Panasonic, Verizon Wireless, McGraw-Hill, Quest Diagnostics, L’Oreal USA, DOW Chemical, and Liberty Science Center. We also work with hundreds of mid-size, small and start-up businesses.

Cooperative Education Program

The Co-op Program administered through NJIT's Career Development Services(CDS) can boost an organization's productivity and strengthen recruiting efforts. CDS  assists students in identifying career interests and selecting appropriate prospective co-op work assignments. NJIT faculty members review the academic credentials of students as admission criteria. Students are available full- or part-time year round.

NJIT’s co-op program is academically integrated with faculty supervision and employer evaluations as important components of a high-quality learning and work experience. Each year some 400 students work at corporations, government agencies, nonprofit groups and research organizations nationwide.

  • A full time Career Development Services staff dedicated to assisting students and employers in meeting their objectives
  • A centralized database of available students and employer work opportunities

Co-op Work Cycles
