Most internship positions, as opposed to Cooperative Education positions, provide a one time (usually one semester) opportunity for students to utilize their academic training in a work setting.
Internships may be:
- Salaried, volunteer, or paid stipend
- Academic credit or non-credit
- Located anywhere - business, industry, state or federal government or non-profit institutions, etc.
- Co-op positions generally require 2 or more semesters of work and are always salaried.
