University-sponsored international travel and travel within Canada remain suspended until further notice. Learn more about university guidelines on Travel and Mobility. No travel is permitted for an internship. The Engineering Internship Office is unable to issue documents related to internships that involve travel or in-person internships that are outside of Canada. The Engineering Internship Office can only provide the Déclaration relative à la participation étudiant à activité étudiante (convention de stage) if the internship can be done fully remotely for summer 2021. Please consult our Covid-19 FAQ page for more information.
We encourage students to acquire relevant work experience during the course of their studies. Internships / industrial practicums are paid, full time work terms conducted in a field related to your major. Full time engineering undergraduate students can participate in 4, 8, 12 or 16 month internships. Students must be full-time, before and after the internship, in one of the following programs: Bioengineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or Software Engineering. Once the internship has been approved by the Internship Advisor, you will be registered in the Industrial Practicum course (FACC 200, 201…)
To obtain the Internship Program designation (your program name will change to Bachelor of Engineering Internship Program), students must complete at least 2 internship terms – either two separate internship terms OR a longer internship of 8, 12 or 16 months.
Students studying Materials or Mining Engineering participate in a co-op program. Starting September 2021, students in Software Engineering will be required to participate in a mandatory co-op program.
