All KGCOE students are required to complete co-operative education work experiences as an integral part of their BS degree. Please see the Cooperative Education section of the program curriculum flow for full details about this aspect of the degree. Students must complete nominally one year of co-operative education work experience as a degree requirement (two semesters of ~15 weeks and two summers of ~10 weeks). Students are scheduled at least 48 weeks of work experience. Many students exceed the one year minimum requirement.

RIT has the third oldest and third largest coop program in the country.
