Started in 1921, the Cooperative Education Program is a five-year academic program in which students alternate semesters of full-time studies and semesters of full-time work. Georgia Tech has the largest optional co-op plan in the nation and is the highest ranked program of its kind among public U.S. universities.
Resources of this office include career counseling, job interview practice, resumé tools, and job listings that range from internship and co-op assignments while students are still in school to full-time positions after graduation. This office also organizes several career fairs throughout the school year.
