The National Security Agency (NSA) will be holding an Information Session with representatives from the Cooperative Education (Co-Op) Program. You will be able to hear how the NSA’s Co-Op Program may be a GREAT fit for you!
The NSA’s Co-Op Program is geared towards college second-semester freshman and sophomores majoring in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Cybersecurity or Chinese related majors. Applicants also have to be U.S. citizens and eligible to obtain a security clearance.
In this Program, students will alternate semesters of full-time work with full-time school, including summer semesters, until the student graduates. The Program requires a minimum of 52 weeks of Co-op work experience by graduation. This work experience allows the student to be fully prepared for full-time employment post-graduation.
These are paid positions and students’ salaries are highly competitive and determined by the percentage of credits completed toward their degree. There are other perks, too, like paid time off, paid holidays and sick leave. On top of that, you’ll also be eligible to receive reimbursement for one technical course per school semester.
