TNI provides the Cooperative Education to all students. Students must participate in co-op (four months) or internship (two months) based on their academic majors. This is intended to educate students about practical work experience that directly relates to their academic majors and to assist with defining a career path. Students are supervised by specialized professionals at each workplace to enhance knowledge and ensure understanding of the work assignments. After training, many TNI students are offered full-time employment positions by their co-op/internship companies after graduation.
At present, more than 1,800 job positions in 600 companies are offered to TNI students for co-ops or internships both in Thailand and overseas, where certain co-op and internship programs are sponsored by partner universities, JTECS (Japan–Thailand Economic Cooperation Society), partner companies and benefactors, Thai and Japanese organizations, etc.
