Job Posting Policies


The Cooper Union does not offer academic credit for internship experiences. The Cooper Union will activate unpaid internships postings that have a clearly articulated learning component and demonstrate that the interns are directly supervised by a professional in the field in which they are working.

Whether the internship is paid or unpaid, we offer "Starting and Maintaining a Quality Internship Program by Michael True" as a helpful reference for developing experiential learning programs. This document is made available as a point of departure and does not represent the Cooper Union's internship programs.

For additional information about internships aimed at for-profit private sector employers, see the U.S. Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division's "Fact Sheet #71: Internship Programs Under The Fair Labor Standards Act."

The Professional Internship Program limits each internship site to one participating student per semester. Cooper students are encouraged to seek unique and diverse internships that support their individual learning goals and enlarge their professional networks. For more information about the program, please review the student pages of the Professional Internship Program.

Third Party Recruiters

The Cooper Union Career Center welcomes job postings from third party recruiters provided the organization:

  • presents the hiring company's name to the Career Center
  • does not charge the student a "placement fee" for employment

Career Fairs and on-campus recruiting events are not open to third-party recruiters.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
