Engineering students are strongly encouraged to participate in the Cooperative Education Program (Co-Op) at Tennessee Tech. The Program is a voluntary, independent educational program available to all students in all disciplines. To be eligible for Co-Op, students must have a 2.5 GPA and have attended Tennessee Tech University for at least three full academic semesters. Transfer students are eligible after completing two semesters.
Students who participate in the Co-Op Program and graduate from Tennessee Tech University begin their careers with both work experience and a degree. These qualifications help most students earn a higher beginning salary, sometimes as much as $4,000 higher than those who do not complete a Co-Op program. There are many other advantages of participating in the Program.To learn more about the Co-op Program, please visit Career Services.
