Cooperative Education Program

Future Co-ops

Our Co-op program is designed to give hands-on experience to talented undergraduates in the areas of Engineering, Business, Finance, and Computer Science. This is an excellent opportunity to put classroom theory into actual practice. Our program provides students with an opportunity to build on their experiences through increased responsibility each returning semester. Our goal through this program is to train you to become a full-time employee with Southern Company.
