Northeastern’s integration of classroom study and real-world experience is ideally suited for the College of Computer and Information Science (CCIS). World leading technology firms employ Northeastern co-op students, offering unmatched opportunities to sample jobs in software development, systems and networks, business applications, or web development at Fortune 500 companies, entrepreneurial start-ups, and everything in between. Co-op opportunities also exist with companies and institutions that are deeply involved with computing applications.
If students chose to pursue one of CCIS’s dual majors with business, cognitive psychology, mathematics, physics, biology, multimedia studies, or music technology, students will find the landscape of possible co-ops even broader, including areas of leading-edge research in biotechnology and biomedicine.
Our co-op faculty are integrated into the college, providing students with plenty of support for their job search, during co-op, and afterwards as they reflect on how the experience dovetailed with their classroom learning. However, as is true of the co-op program throughout the University, students will need to compete for top co-op positions in computer and information science, just as they will for full-time positions after graduation. That is part of the value of co-op in preparing them to succeed as a professional in the real world.
