Occupational Work Experience (CWE) Education is an academic course in which work sites serve as "off-campus classrooms." CWE extends classroom based occupational learning to a work site in a field directly related to the student's educational or occupational goal. Faculty, employers and students work together to create a meaningful work-based educational experience by developing and achieving specific learning objectives related to their jobs. CWE can help students develop necessary work habits, open doors to new employment experiences, or assist students in acquiring skills and knowledge necessary for advancement in their current employment. Specific units are determined based on the number of hours a student works over the semester.
