Career and placement
Central to the Drexel experience is the university’s Undergraduate Co-op Program — one of the largest programs of its kind in the nation. Participating students are employed full-time at Drexel-approved businesses or organizations, alternating between six months of co-op and six months of academic study. Since 1919, more than 1,500 businesses have participated in the program, including many located abroad. With an average of 18 months of work experience on their resumes before they graduate, Drexel students possess many of the qualities employers look for when recruiting new hires.

In addition to facilitating the Undergraduate Co-op Program, the Drexel Steinbright Career Development Center offers career counseling, academic advising and on-campus recruiting sessions.
