At Wichita State, applied learning is a big part of what we do. In fact, every degree we offer has opportunities for an applied learning or research experience. As a Shocker, you'll get the chance to work side by side with established professionals, building contacts, confidence and a strong resume before graduation.


Co-op Education & Internships

Our location in Wichita, as well as our 40-year-old program, has allowed us to form strong relationships with public, private and nonprofit organizations that offer a variety of cooperative education and internship opportunities.

These positions are an invaluable way for WSU students to gain professional experience to complement the strong academic fundamentals they learn in the classroom.

Innovation Campus Partners

Innovation Campus Opportunities

The Innovation Campus gives Wichita State students opportunities for applied learning and research experiences that others schools just can't match. With a growing list of partners and a focus on interdisciplinary research, our students can work side-by-side with top professionals while still in school, building contacts, confidence -- and a strong resume. 

At its core, the Innovation Campus is all about students — they represent both the campus’ greatest resource and the primary motivating factor behind everything it does. Corporate partners are here because they understand the benefit of interaction with our students' enthusiasm, energy and new ideas. That collaboration gives our students a major advantage after graduation through tangible resume experience and a professional network that will help them begin their career sooner and advance faster.
