Visit RIT’s campus of over 15,000 students to showcase your organization’s offerings to prospective students seeking international opportunities including, but not limited to, study abroad programs, work abroad programs and overseas employment.
For over 100 years, the hallmark of an RIT education has been the practical, paid work experience provided through cooperative education. RIT was among the first universities to begin cooperative education back in 1912, and today our co-op program is the fourth oldest and one of the largest in the world.
More than 3,600 RIT students completed more than 5,300 work assignments last year and were employed by nearly 2,000 employers coast to coast and abroad. Co-op is one of the most effective means for employers to identify and acquire key talent – few institutions have done it as well and as long as RIT. RIT’s extensive experience and resources allow us to successfully meet the needs of nearly all types of employing organizations. We offer programs in 9 colleges, Engineering, Computing and Information Sciences, Science & Math, Business, Imaging Arts & Science, Liberal Arts, and National Technical Institute of the Deaf.
