In addition, DoPP programs inspire students to pursue greater academic challenges while helping them earn money for expenses while attending Georgia Tech.

The co-op program, currently celebrating its 100th Anniversary, is the fourth oldest collegiate co-op program in the country, and includes undergraduate students who alternate semesters of on-campus study with at least three semesters of full-time employment with the same employer. Students in the internship program work their choice of either full-time or part-time internships lasting one or more semesters, and have the option of working a single internship with one employer, or multiple internships with one or more employers. Graduate co-ops are masters and doctoral students who work part-time or full-time job assignments in their respective areas of study for one or more semesters. In the international program both undergraduate and graduate students work internships or co-op jobs lasting for three months to one year with employers outside the United States.

DoPP employers are located not only in the Atlanta area, but also across the country and around the world, and include small privately owned enterprises, major multinational corporations, non-profit organizations, and governmental agencies.

DoPP Executive Director Patrick R. Antony, commenting on the co-op and internship program at Georgia Tech, said, “We had more than 3,500 students go to work during the 2011 – 2012 academic year and look forward to serving even more students during the coming semesters. We invite students who are interested in learning more about our programs to visit our website, www.dopp.gatech.edu.”

Antony added, “We also invite family and friends of Georgia Tech students, alumni, and others who are business owners or managers, and who may be interested in hiring DoPP co-ops or interns, to contact us to explore that possibility. They can email us at profpractice@dopp.gatech.edu.”
