Colorado Tech University in U.S.A. offers an option to students in all of their graduate Master’s programs to change to a "co-op" internship program after they join the university. In the "co-op" program, international students can work up to 40 hours per week in "practical training" jobs for which they are paid regular wages.
All of the internship employment positions are with off-campus American based companies in the Colorado Springs and Denver areas. Full-time employment at "regular" wages is available for Master’s students who select the "Internship" program at CTU.
How does it work?

The Colorado Technical University program works in the following manner:
Apply: You can apply for the graduate program in Colorado Technical University and if you get an admission, you can go on a normal student visa.
Change Program: You can look for a job. Once you get a job, get the work permit. This would allow you to work 40 hours per week outside the campus in an American company.
Important: If you do not wish to change to a co-op program, you can continue with your normal graduate masters program. It is your choice. Most student prefer to change to the co-op program because of the earning potential.
Through this program, International students have the right to complete their required internship by working in part time or full time paid employment with American based companies near the campuses. All wages paid can be kept by the students and used for their tuition and fees, living and personal expenses.


There are many advantages of studying at CTU:
Low Cost: Colorado Technical University is among the more affordable universities in US. The tuition fee for a graduate program is just around US $ 12,000 per year.
