Co-ops & Interns

The CASE Co-op and Internship Program connects New York businesses with affordable, flexible, highly-trained graduate students who have the skills and experience in a wide range of information and business technologies.

The CASE Co-op and Internship Program

CASE Co-ops assignments are extremely flexible for both students and employers, ranging from very short-term projects of a few days or weeks, to positions lasting several years—or even becoming permanent after graduation. Co-op students can work up to 20 hours per week during the academic year and full time during breaks and summer, depending on the position.

  • Access an expanded talent pool of international students legally, with no visa issues.
  • Assistance with creating job descriptions.
  • Resume collection and prescreening, electronically and face-to-face.
  • Reduced administrative burden on employers; CASE handles payroll, administration.

“The CASE Co-op program has been wonderful! By integrating Co-op interns into our team, we were able to rapidly investigate evolving platform technologies, extend prototypes, and test our new products. The CASE team makes it extraordinarily easy to match students with the right talents and drive. In fact, our first full-time hire is an SU graduate who came to us through CASE!”

“Over the years, Anaren has worked with CASE to both identify and procure talented students, either in the capacity of interns or as full-time employees, as our business and technology needs change.

Aligning with a department like CASE at SU allows Anaren to tap into a massive talent pool that covers a vast number of disciplines. As our business grows and our markets expand, we are always looking for expertise outside of our core competencies and CASE has allowed us to identify and act quickly in this critical acquisition of talent.

Syracuse University has both national and international recognition in a wide variety of key technology areas. We have found the recommendations from CASE to be both accurate and expedient. This helps us in our pursuit of the very best in both educated and motivated resources who “hit the ground running” upon arrival either as interns of full- time contributors to the Anaren legacy.”
