MIAE Students






As a student member of the MIAE, undergraduate engineering students and graduate mechanical engineering students (non-thesis Aerospace) will gain access to the Statements of Work (SOWs) submitted by partner companies of the Montreal Aerospace Institute (MAI) website. Students must be eligible to work in Canada upon application.

Summer 2018 job postings will begin January 2018;

Fall 2018 job postings will be in May 2018;

Winter 2019 job postings will be in September 2018.

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:

FACC 210: MIAE Industrial Practicum 1

FACC 211: MIAE Industrial Practicum 2

FACC 212: MIAE Industrial Practicum 3

FACC 213: MIAE Industrial Practicum 4

**Students applying for internships who have an in-course scholarship must speak with Lori Hurdle-Teoli (FDA 22) to ensure your internship will not affect your scholarship.**

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 professor members to hire students to conduct research in the aerospace field, such as:

  • Hybrid Composite Aerospace Parts
  • Space Debris Removal Using Tethers
  • Reconfigurable materials with tailored thermal expansion for aerospace
  • Flight testing of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)
  • Integration of rule-based design space exploration and multidisciplinary design optimization
  • 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.

MIAE student member events & activities for development

The 2017-2018 MIAE student executive is planning the following events and activities for student members towards their personal and professional growth:

  • Software workshops, such as CATIA V5, MATLAB, HyperWorks, ANSYS
  • Soft skills workshops, such as Resume building, face-to-face interviews and networking
    • Student-Industry dinner (November 14, 2017)
  • Developmental lectures
  • Guest speaker series
  • Industrial and lab tours
  • External training at École nationale d'aérotechnique
  • ... details will be posted soon!

All McGill students can take advantage of SKILLS21. This is a new approach to academic, professional and personal growth in five (5) streams: Citizenship, collaboration, discovery, leadership and well-being.

Register by September 30, 2017.
