Biographical/Historical Note

The fourth institution nationwide to adopt the cooperative program, Georgia Tech has provided cooperative education for its students since 1912. In the early days of the program, engineering students could elect to enroll in the five-year program, in which they would alternate periods of school and work in industries related to their course of study. At first, students in Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering could participate in the program; Textile Engineering was added by 1920, Civil and Chemical Engineering were added by 1928, Aerospace Engineering was added in 1942, and shortly after World War II Industrial Engineering became part of the program. In the 1960s, Chemistry, Engineering Mechanics, Physics, and Industrial Management became additional disciplines in the cooperative program. Ceramic Engineering, Nuclear Engineering, Computer Science, Management, and Mathematics were all added by the early 1980s. By the mid-1980s, over 2,000 students were enrolled in the program; by the early 1990s, a total of 23 disciplines offered cooperative program options. Cooperative programs have been available for graduate students since 1983.

During the 1980s and 1990s cooperative programs operated under the jurisdiction of the Vice President for Academic Affairs, except during J. Patrick Crecine's presidency, when they were overseen by the Executive Vice President. As of this writing (August 2011), the Undergraduate Cooperative Education Program is part of the Division of Professional Practice (DoPP), which manages undergraduate and graduate co-op programs as well as internship and work abroad programs. DoPP is overseen by the Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs through the Senior Vice Provost, Academic Affairs.


Scope and Content Note

This collection draws together all of the publications of the co-op program at Tech that are located in the Georgia Tech Archives. The first series, Bulletins, includes catalogs that were published for prospective students of the cooperative program, dating from 1920 to 1994. Many of these publications are part of the Bulletins of the Georgia Institute of Technology collection (UP019); those that are part of UP019 are also listed in this finding aid. Series 2, Guides, includes a few publications for counselors, employers, and co-op students dating from the mid-1980s. Like the guides, the items in Series 3, Handbooks, contain guidance for employers and students involved in the cooperative programs at Tech. The items in Series 3 date from 2006 to 2008. Series 4, Newsletters, consists of a few issues of two newsletters. The Cooperatively Speaking newsletter focuses mainly on the concerns of co-op students, while the Cooperative Division Newsletter contains news items of importance to employers and counselors as well as co-op students.

    SERIES 2: Guides, 1984-1985

    Arrangement

    The Guide for Counselors is cataloged as T171 .G42 G3953X; the Guides for Employers are cataloged as T171 .G42 G39515X; the Guide for Students is found at T171 .G42 G39517X.

    Description

    These guides for counselors, employers, and cooperative students may have been published only for a brief time during the mid-1980s; the Georgia Tech Archives holds only four issues, all of them probably published during that time period. The counselors guide focuses on application procedures, selection criteria, placement with employers, and student schedules. The guides for employers provide general procedures on participating in the program as employers. The student guide covers such things as placement procedures and interviewing, salaries and budgeting, housing, and schedules.
