ProTrack Co-op at Florida Tech

How ProTrack Works

Prospective students applying for admission to Florida Tech's College of Engineering and wishing to enroll in ProTrack should indicate so by checking the appropriate box on their admission application, which is available for download or completion online.

The entire first year is spent in classes at Florida Tech, where students build a strong foundation in the knowledge and skills needed for their first co-op job. Students must earn an average GPA of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) in their academic studies their first year to begin ProTrack.

During the first year of study, ProTrack students take Engineering Co-op Prep 1000, a comprehensive preparatory course focused on critical skills and strategies for success in choosing the right co-op and excelling in it. Topics include career exploration, resume development, the job search, interview skills, and workplace issues.  With these skills in hand, students begin seeking co-op positions utilizing Panther Career Link (formerly Experience), Career Shift, and their own research, aided by the guidance, research and encouragment of their ProTrack academic adviser and co-op coordinator.
