2021 - Startup & Intern Profiles

The McGill Engine continues to offer the Startup Internship Program that was created last summer to help provide mentorship and learning experiences for McGill students over the summer. Seven McGill Faculty of Engineering affiliated startups were selected to train and supervise an intern for 12 weeks.

The selected interns are from the faculties of Engineering and Science and each of them will have the opportunity to collaborate remotely with both the startup and a mentor at the Engine Centre to ensure a well rounded learning experience during the internship.

Thanks to our generous alumnus donor John D. Thompson and to the Government of Canada’s Student Work Placement Program (SWPP)/TECHNATION Canada Career Ready Program, we have been able to continue the Startup Internship Program to provide our students with an experiential learning opportunity within our startups over this summer.
