One thing students won’t have when they graduate from RIT is a padded resume. It’s a win-win for our corporate partners, too. While students graduate with real, paid work experience; companies benefit from innovative students who bring new ideas and energy to a company.

Our co-op program attracts more than 1,900 employers worldwide, giving our students an unbelievable selection of companies, large and small, to consider for co-op positions.

There’s no better way for students to apply what they’ve learned in the classroom than to participate in a cooperative education experience. Not only do students gain insight into their career field, they make contacts with professionals, clarify their career goals, and give themselves an edge over the competition.
