What is Co-op?
Co-op, short for Cooperative Education, is the integration of classroom theory with applied learning in appropriate fields of business, engineering, science, technology, education, and other professions. Florida Tech students can obtain valuable major-related work experience through the Co-op program, and receive academic credit for their experience. Co-op at Florida Tech is an optional program for qualified main campus students and is available for every major, with appropriate departmental approvals. Getting major-related work experience can be a great way for students to apply what they have learned in the classroom and can help clarify career goals. In addition, students gain a competitive edge in their full-time job search because they have the skills and relevant experience that employers are seeking.
