What is the difference between a Co-op and an Internship?
Students doing a co-op receive academic credit while acquiring professional skills and earning an income. A co-op, however, is more than a job; it is a workplace-based learning opportunity that is supported by student observation and reflection. Co-op positions are available to undergraduate students that have completed at least the third year of Cal Poly's Architecture program. For more information on our co-op program, including student requirements, please visit the Cooperative Education and Internship page.
For Cal Poly purposes, an internship provides a similar opportunity as a co-op but is unpaid. Internship positions are available to all undergraduate students.
To post a job position for a current or graduating students, or alumni, see our Job Board.
