Tutors are available for every area of study.

Cooperative Education

Cooperative Education

Cooperative Education (co-op) is full-time, paid work experience that gives students the opportunity to work in their field of study to apply the skills they’ve learned in the classroom. By gaining the knowledge that can only come through hands-on work, our students are more attractive to employers. Co-op gives students the advantage they need to stand out against other job candidates.

All of our engineering majors require one year of co-op experience. This is usually completed by alternating semesters of full-time work with semesters of academic study. Students are eligible to begin applying for co-op after their second year of study. RIT has more than 500 engineering co-op partners, a bi-annual career fair, and on-campus recruiting events, students have multiple opportunities to identify and apply to co-op positions that best suit their interests and professional aspirations.

Accelerated Dual Degrees

Accelerated Dual Degrees

RIT’s Combined Accelerated Bachelor’s/Master’s Degrees are for our most highly focused, goal-oriented students. These pathways enable you to earn both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in as little as five years. That’s a full year of time, effort, and expense shaved off from what is normally a six- to seven-year journey.
