Experiential Learning

Cooperative Education

Cooperative education, or co-op for short, is full-time, paid work experience in your field of study. And it sets RIT graduates apart from their competitors. It’s exposure–early and often–to a variety of professional work environments, career paths, and industries. RIT co-op is designed for your success.

Co-op is optional for students in the applied and computational mathematics program. Students may pursue a co-op position after their first semester.
