This video adapted from ATETV introduces viewers to internships and cooperative education programs, or "co-ops." These two types of work experience—one part-time, the other full-time—help prepare students for careers in technology and engineering. Bristol Community College encourages its students to do internships and co-ops in order to gain hands-on experience and apply classroom lessons in the real world. Because internships and co-ops allow students to work with the actual equipment and technology used in industry, this can help students get hired by employers as soon as they graduate from their school or certificate program.
