ProTrack Co-Op

ProTrack Cooperative Education

ProTrack Co-op is the integration of classroom theory with applied learning in appropriate fields of business, science, engineering, education, social services and other professions.  The work situation is developed and/or approved by the educational institution as a suitable learning situation wherein students are engaged in productive and challenging work (rather than merely observing), the student receives fair compensation for the work performed and the co-op student’s progress on the job is monitored by the educational institution and is evaluated by the employer.

At Florida Tech, co-op is tied to academic semesters and students are allowed 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 when enrolled in co-op for academic credit.  Students can continue to work for local companies (or remotely) throughout the school year when their schedules permit and with appropriate departmental approvals.

Co-op offers students professional growth opportunities that allow them to return to campus a better student, a more energized engineer, a sharper coder, a smarter technician, a clearer psychologist, a more sophisticated manager, a finer accountant, a better writer – whatever their field of study, their tested skills improve!
