In the Internship Program, students spend 12 to 16 consecutive months working in a paid engineering position prior to the last year of their Bachelor of Engineering Science (BESc) program. Internship provides a longer work term and more extensive experience than SECOP, which ensures that students are able to work on advanced projects, seeing them through from beginning to end.
