Tennessee Tech University mechanical engineering major Josh Bryant will spend one year working for Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations on a co-op, or cooperative education assignment.

Bryant, of Tullahoma, will assist in various expansion projects with the tire plant.

“Co-op experience gives TTU students an edge as they get ready to start their careers, especially in a tight job market,” said Don Foster, Career Services associate director. “The experimental education program can help students develop skills and better discover what they want to do when they enter the workforce after graduation.”

Students from all academic disciplines are eligible for the TTU co-op program, which is coordinated by the Office of Career Services. The office works regularly with hundreds of employers across the Southeast including business, industry, non-profit and government agencies to fit students’ career interests.

Tennessee Tech University, with an enrollment of more than 11,700 students, has been selected as one of the nation’s 50 “Best Value” public colleges and universities and “best Southeastern College” by The Princeton Review.

Bryant, son of Sonya Bryant, graduated from Tullahoma High in 2009. He is a senior at TTU.
