Co-Op Program

What is the Internship/Co-op Program?

The Internship/Co-op Program alternates or combines periods of college study with periods of experience in Science, Mathematics and Engineering fields. Students are provided the opportunity to gain career related work experience while earning college credits toward their degree.

This program provides students with part-time employment in science, mathematics and engineering related fields with local companies. Co-op work experiences empower students with knowledge and skills for the journey into tomorrow's work world.

Jobs Available Now!

High-tech jobs are made available to Sinclair science, mathematics and engineering students by a special grant established by the Governor of Ohio. The goal of the Ohio Third Frontier Internship Program is to offer college students high-tech job opportunities while they are in school and then for employers to retain these Ohio college graduates within the state by offering them good high-tech jobs upon graduation.
