Cooperative education (co-op) is the most extensive and intensive of RIT’s experiential education opportunities. Co-op is full-time, paid work experience directly related to your course of study and career interests. Many academic programs require co-op, while others make it available on an optional basis. Each year more than 3,500 students complete more than 5,500 work assignments with nearly 2,000 companies and organizations from small startup firms to Fortune 500 corporations. Last year, those students generated more than $30 million in earnings through their employment with industry, business, government, and the not-for-profit sector in the U.S. and in 40 other countries.
