Several Career Fairs are offered each semester. View current Career Fairs on our Events page.
An internship is a career-related work experience usually lasting one semester, often occuring during the summer. Internships should be a carefully monitored learning experience for the student - assignments appropriate to the student's educational level and related to their field of study are expected.
COOPERATIVE EDUCATION (Co-ops)
Co-op is an educational program which provides students with a structured and progressive work experience, combining semesters of on-campus coursework with paid, practical experience. Co-op students are paid during their work assignments, and also receive academic credit.
During a co-op, some students alternate employment with semesters at TAMU (ex: Fall at work, Spring at A&M, Summer at work), many work back-to-back semesters (ex: Spring & Summer or Summer & Fall), and others work single semester work terms prior to returning to school.
