Engineering Internship Program (EIP)

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.

Note that students studying Software Engineering, Materials or Mining Engineering are required to pursue co-ops during specific terms within their curriculum, as it is a mandatory component of their co-op program.

After obtaining my degree, I made a bold move to transition into tech, wishing to become a frontend developer. After six months of self-teaching and freelance projects, I was hired as a frontend developer at a web agency, where I worked for a year before being recruited by my current company to manage their workforce management platform.

With an increasingly competitive economic landscape, it's important for engineering students to not only gain experience in their field of study, but to gain complementary skills that fall way outside of their selected discipline. More than ever before, organizations are hiring people with a very diversified skill set in order to foster the creativity necessary to succeed.  Meet Angela

B. Eng Electrical Engineering 1998

Since I was a child, I was passionate about astronomy and all things space-related.  My greatest role models as a youth were our team of Canadian astronauts.  Using their passion and motivation as a guide, I chose to study both engineering (at the Bachelor’s level) and space science (at the Master’s level) to gain skills that would be needed for a career in developing instruments for space exploration.
