Cooperative Education, or co-op, 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 and receive academic credit through the co-op program .
Students are permitted to work full- or part-time any semester, for a single semester, or back-to-back semesters. Students maintain their full-time student status in Fall and Spring by working full-time. Students can continue to work for local companies throughout the school year when their schedules permit.
ProTrack Co-op at Florida Tech is an optional program and is available for every major, with appropriate departmental approvals.
