Equipped for the Future!

Cooperative Education (CO-OP) aims to engage students with practical work experience supported by classroom instruction. Through industry partnerships across the region, students are employed in program specific opportunities as educational credit. Our Cooperative Education Coordinator collaborates with the student, the employer, and the program instructor to foster the best experience. If you are interested in Cooperative Education, you must first be a student at ECTS. Then, inquire with your program instructor for more information. More information about cooperative education can be obtained from the Pennsylvania Department of Education Career and Technical Education.
