Internships are very similar to the Co-op work terms, but have a few small differences:
- While Co-op allows you to work for a semester at one employer, then go back to class, then work again for another employer, etc., an internship only allows you one placement for either twelve or sixteen months with only one employer. You are able to work for a longer period of time to fully recognize the nature of the job in various seasons, allow for completion of projects, etc.
- Senior students, or students who have completed their third year of their program, are eligible for an internship.
- Many employers prefer to hire students for longer periods of time as a "test-run" for future permanent employment once completed school.
Available Internships are:
- Actuarial Science Internships
- Engineering Internships
- Aboriginal Internships
