Engineering Internship Program

Engineering Internship Program

Real world experiences await.

What is the EIP?

The McGill Engineering Internship Program (EIP) offers full-time undergraduate engineering students in non co-op degree programs the possibility of participating in industry-related internships and having their experiences formally recognized. With an increasing number of employers requiring applicants to be part of a formal university coop/internship program, the EIP enables non co-op students to be eligible and apply to those internship opportunities.
