Cooperative education (co-op) is an optional academic program designed to enrich students' educational experience by providing them with salaried work experiences related to their majors, minors or career goals. Co-op students are placed in either full or part-time positions. They may elect to receive credit for their placement or they may participate in the non-credit option.

Above Elena Vetere is showing the work she did during her recent co-op to her professor.
"I spent this summer in Spartanburg, SC working as an intern in the Automotive Division of Milliken & Company. As a Textile Design major, I went into this position having experience in printing, weaving, knitting, and various CAD systems. In my job I researched brand identity, created CAD simulations, and had my designs circular knitted and finished.

Other projects consisted of redesigning the product display at the print plant, creating original print designs, compiling a reference book for the print designers, organizing the automotive print library, and assisting the designers."
