Randy Scott Little, a Tennessee Tech University student from Rogersville, Tenn., has been selected for a cooperative education, or co-op, assignment with Kysor/Warren in Columbus, Ga.

 

During his assignment, Little will gain experience in the field of mechanical engineering.

 

“The co-op program is an excellent way for students to gain the type of experience that will give them an edge in a very tight job market,” said Don Foster, Office of Career Services associate director.  “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 currently earn between $12.50 and $22 per hour and major in business, engineering, arts and sciences, and education.  The university’s co-op program began in 1959 and has experienced record student participation during recent semesters.  Tennessee Tech’s co-op office works with more than a hundred employers across the southeast—from businesses to industry and government agencies—to match students’ interests with co-op openings.

 

Little, son of Becky and Scott Little, is a 2007 graduate of Cherokee High School and a senior mechanical engineering major at TTU.
