Co-operative Education Program/Internship

Co-operative Education is available in the following programs: Architectural Engineering Technology, Construction Technology, Design for the Web, Fine Arts, Graphic Design, Interior Design, Studio Arts.

One of the challenges facing students as they prepare to enter the workforce is how to get a job without experience. Since one cannot get experience without first having a job, it can become a frustrating dilemma. NCC has a solution; Cooperative Education can break the vicious cycle.

Through NCC’s Cooperative Education Program, employers hire students who are nearing graduation and ready to begin their careers. The students can work part-time or full-time and receive college credit for the work experience they gain. The beauty of the program is that is serves as a bridge between college and career. Students gain experience before graduating, and they are introduced to the work force while they are still capable of upgrading their educational portfolios. Employers get the benefit of being able to meet ambitious people with the latest and most up-to-date skills, fresh from college.
