McGill Engineering has two different programs whereby students can acquire relevant work experience in industry. Undergraduate students studying Chemical, Civil, Computer, Electrical, Mechanical or Software Engineering can participate in the Engineering Internship Program. Mining and Materials Engineering students participate in a mandatory cooperative education program.
Engineering Internship Program (EIP)
McGill’s Engineering Internship Program provides undergraduates an opportunity to participate in 4, 8, 12 or 16 month-long engineering internships commencing in September, January or May. The duration of each internship term must be between 12 and 16 weeks.
The Engineering Internship Program gives employers the opportunity to invest in future employees while contributing to students' educational process in a significant and meaningful way. Our students participate in internships in order to further their academic, professional and personal growth.
The Department of Mining and Materials Engineering offers two mandatory cooperative education programs. For information about the programs and hiring co-op students from these programs, please see www.mcgill.ca/minmat.
