Jessica Musser, a Tennessee Tech University student from Goodlettsville, has been selected for a four-month co-op assignment with G.E. Roper Corp. in Layfayette, Ga.

During an assignment that began in August, Musser will work on product design and evaluation, gas combustion, reliability and quality assurance.

“The co-op program is an excellent way for students to gain the type of experience that will give them an edge in the job market,” said Don Foster, associate director of TTU’s Career Services. “In addition to helping students grow and improve their capabilities, co-op also provides income that can be used to help pay for college studies.”

Tennessee Tech co-op students earn between $12.50 and $24 an hour and major in business, engineering, arts/sciences and education. The university’s co-op program began in 1959 and has experienced record student participation during recent semesters. TTU’s co-op office works with more than 100 employers across the Southeast, from business to industry to government agencies, to match student interest with co-op openings.

Musser, daughter of Gail Massey and Warren Musser, is a 2004 graduate of Hunters Lane Comprehensive High School. She is a mechanical engineering major and a member of the student chapter of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
