MIAE Students

Canadian Space Agency (CSA) tour, February 2016

The link between MIAE and MAI will enable qualifying undergraduate students to access paid internships in the aerospace industry, which are distributed amongst all the institutes by the MAI. The selected students will then work on the projects under the joint supervision of an industrial and an academic researcher. In this way, the students will be exposed to the international and multidisciplinary environment of Aerospace and will have a chance to prove their worth in these challenging conditions.

All students will have a chance to participate in other activities organized by MIAE to give them a view of the Aerospace Industry and its challenges, such as plant visits and specially designed courses.



As a member of the MIAE, undergraduate engineering students will gain access to the Statements of Work (SOWs) submitted by partner companies to the Montreal Aerospace Institute (MAI) website.

Job postings for Fall 2016 begins as early as May.

When to apply for MIAE membership? Apply between January - June (early April interviews is ideal).

Job postings for Winter 2017 begins in September or October.

When to apply for MIAE membership? Apply in August for early September interviews.

Job postings for Summer 2017 begins in January.

When to apply for MIAE membership? Apply in August for mid-late September interviews, or anytime in Fall semester.

Undergraduate Engineering students (except Materials Co-op) who successfully obtain a work term will be registered for a FACC course displaying their MIAE internship experience in that semester.

Do seek out your program academic adviser to help you understand where you can fit in internships within your curriculum:

Summer Undergraduate Research

All students in the Engineering Faculty have access to apply to the annual Summer Undergraduate Research in Engineering (SURE) program. The MIAE supports Faculty members to hire students to conduct research in the aerospace field, such as:

  • Hybrid Composite Aerospace Parts
  • Development of Numerical Methods for the Design of the Next-Generation of Environmental Friendly Aircraft
  • Flight Testing of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
  • Evaluation of the graded microstructure developed during additive manufacturing of AI-based aerospace components

Information for this is available on the Faculty website from December for the following Summer.

Professional development events & activities

The MIAE student executive is actively planning for the 2016-2017 academic year. As a member of the MIAE, students can participate in a variety of events and activities towards their personal and professional development. Here are some examples from the 2015-2016 year:

May 2016: Astronaut David Saint-Pierre presentation on his passion to go to space (and he will be going to space November 2018!)

April 2016: End of year dinner

March 2016: Engine Familiarization - aircraft training certified by École Nationale d'Aérotechnique (12 hours)

February 2016: Canadian Space Agency (CSA) tour (2 hours)

SAE Aero design team(s)

The MIAE is a proud Platinum sponsor of the three (3) AERO McGill teams in 2015-2016. We are pleased to annouce the Micro Class team placed 3rd in the Written Design Report Award at the SAE Aero Design East Competition held in Forthworth, Texas! Congratulations!!

Call for student members!

There are calls to MIAE student members to participate in the 2016-2017 team(s). For details, please review the AERO McGill website.
