ProTrack Co-Op

What Is ProTrack Co-Op?

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 .  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.  

Connecting Florida Tech students with high-tech employers, ProTrack is Florida Tech's innovative and flexible cooperative education program.

ProTrack combines a traditional university education with a one-of-a-kind, student-centered cooperative education program.  Our program structure allows both U.S. citizens and international students to complete several semester-long paid work experiences related to their major and career interests while still earning their undergraduate or graduate degree in an appropriate amount of time.  Co-op is available every semester, for multiple semesters, not just in the summer or as a one-time experience.
