Internship & Cooperative Education

The Internship and Cooperative Education Program at Oakland Community College is an academic program where classroom study is combined with career related work experience. These real world opportunities are with business, industry and governmental organizations. Students who participate must meet the eligibility requirements determined by faculty within their chosen discipline of study. Cooperative education and internship students earn academic credit and learn to apply classroom skills while establishing professional contacts with employers on the job.



The State of Michigan has launched a new website to assist students seeking internships/co-op positions. The website: http://www.michigan.gov/snyder/0,4668,7-277-58104---,00.html is powered by the Michigan Talent Bank and features a search engine that allows students to review more than 400 internship opportunities.
