Cooperative Education

What’s different about RIT’s engineering education? It’s the opportunity to complete engineering co-ops and internships with top companies in every single industry. You’ll earn more than a master’s degree. You’ll gain real-world career experience that sets you apart.

Cooperative education, or co-op for short, is full-time, paid work experience in your engineering field of study. And it sets RIT engineering graduates apart from their competitors. RIT co-op is designed for your success.

Cooperative education is optional but strongly encouraged for graduate students in the engineering management master's program.
