Cooperative education (co-op) provides an opportunity to put classroom lectures, textbook theories, laboratory research, and your personal initiative to the ultimate test—performance in the workplace. The Office of Career Services and Cooperative Education at RIT provides a variety of workshops, webinars and panels on a wide range of career and job search strategy topics.
Cooperative education provides our students with a competitive advantage over science graduates from other colleges and universities. In some programs, co-op can begin as early as the summer after freshman year, but it typically takes place during third and fourth years. Students can alternate semesters of academic study with co-op work periods—full-time, paid work experiences in positions related to their major.
