Few innovations in education have gained such widespread acceptance and credibility as Co-operative (Co-op) Education programs. A Co-op Education Program is a program that combines a student's academic studies with work experience in co-operative employer organizations. Co-op is "hands-on" education which extends the learning process beyond the classroom into the workplace by alternating academic study terms with paid periods of career related work experience. This applies the theory from the classroom and laboratory to practical and profitable use in the workplace.
