Co-op (Cooperative Education) Programs at New York Tech
Co-op, or cooperative education, is an experiential education program in which New York Tech College of Engineering and Computing Science students can alternate a period of academic study in the classroom with full-time co-op employment in positions directly related to their academic and/or career interests. This combination of university study and full-time employment during a student’s junior or senior year provides an integrated learning experience that enhances their academic experience and career development.
In partnership with our network of industry and business organizations, New York Tech’s co-op students can prepare for the culture and conduct required to be productive in the professional work environment, learn about and engage in successful job search practices, gain invaluable on-the-job experience in their fields of study, and earn income while employed in their co-op positions.
Starting in Fall 2022, the following undergraduate programs will offer the co-op option to their qualified students. Additional programs will be added as we build capacity to support them:
- B.S., Computer Science
- B.S., Information Technology
- B.S., Electrical and Computer Engineering
- B.S., Mechanical Engineering
- B.S., Construction Engineering
- Information for Students
