Can you tell me a little more about KTE?

KTE is a national co-op honor society that promotes academic excellence in the context of experiential learning, for students who value the practical skills they obtain through co-op programs. We have student run chapters across the nation, and hundreds of active members and alumni.

How do I become a member?

See if your school already has an active KTE chapter. Your institution’s career center should be able to tell you. If your school does not already have a chapter, talk to them about starting one yourself! Members are required to have a 3.5+ GPA, and previous experience at a co-op. Depending on your local chapter, there may also be mentorship programs available for students who have not yet had a co-op experience, but are interested.

How will being a member of KTE benefit me?

KTE encourages personal and professional growth through community service, event coordination, resume development, networking opportunities, face time with leading employers, and more.
