Internship & Cooperative Education
The Internship and Cooperative Education program at Oakland Community College is an academic program in which 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 in the state of Michigan. 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 by employer/organization name or location.
Cooperative Education and Internships provides the student, educational institution and a Federal department or agency opportunities to enhance a student’s
career through a combination of classroom studies and supervised on-going training.
Information on these opportunities is available at:
