Experiential Education

At RIT the connection between brilliance in the classroom and professional excellence at the work site begins through experiential education. RIT has a host of programs that connect students with business and industry including co-op assignments, internships, field placements, and special class projects.   Approximately 3,500 students complete at least one co-op assignment each year and are employed by more than 1,900 employers coast to coast and overseas.  RIT is one of the largest and best-recognized co-op schools, recently ranking in Princeton Review’s Top 20 colleges nationwide for experiential education.
