Student Career Opportunities
The LCS Cooperative Education Program provides undergraduate students with an exciting opportunity to not only graduate from Syracuse University with a degree in hand, but to also leave campus with at least two semesters of paid work experience!
Co-op gives students the opportunity to combine their academic studies with professional work experience related to their major. The program is open to all students in the College who have achieved a minimum 2.5 grade point average. Students interested in co-op must apply for the program at the start of their sophomore year; transfer students are eligible to apply after completing their first semester at Syracuse University.
Co-op is a two-semester experience for LCS students. Students typically work the summer between sophomore and junior year and the summer between junior and senior year. The arrangement allows students to gain more than 6 months of paid work experience and still graduate in four years.
The co-op program staff assists and supports students in their search for an ideal position. Over the years, the co-op program has placed LCS students in positions in 25 states across the US.

Internship Program Website
Some students choose to pursue paid internship opportunities. With the assistance of the Syracuse University Internship Program and eRecruiting, and by using resources such as the World Wide Web and faculty/alumni referrals, LCS students successfully identify and obtain internship opportunities at a variety of local, national and international engineering and computer science companies.
Internships usually take place in the summer months between the spring and fall semesters. However, some students work part-time at an internship during the academic year. For most engineering and computer science students, an internship means a paid job, one that also provides them with rich learning and hands-on experiences in their field of study.
LCS students are free to choose from many different paths of opportunity to gain hands-on experience whether through co-op, internships, undergraduate research, and student projects.
