What is CWEE?

CWEE is an acronym for the Cooperative Work Experience Education program at College of the Canyons. CWEE helps students achieve their educational and career goals through for-credit internships (CWE-186/188) and general work experience (CWE-189). Students enroll in a CWEE course and use their internship or job for lab hours, attend one class meeting, and complete a number of independent study assignments. Students must have an internship or job in place prior to enrolling in the CWE course.

Internships must be related to a Career Education program or associated with the students career goal. Internships offer students the opportunity to apply their skills while still in college, gain on-the-job experience, and "try out" a career before graduation.

General work experience is intended to develop new skills by challenging the employee with a project beyond the scope of their typical duties.

The goal of the internship program is to prepare students for the real world of work. College graduates are realizing that it takes more than a degree or certificate to get a good paying job. It takes work experience too.

  • The mission of Cooperative Work Experience Education and Internship program is to strengthen student learning by engaging students in enhanced on-the-job learning opportunities and provide meaningful internship opportunities to students of all majors, enabling students to apply the skills and knowledge acquired in their academic coursework while adhering to generally accepted business principles, standards and work ethics.
