About the Schulich School of Engineering Internship Program

Schulich students have the option to participate in our 12 to 16-month internships, which offer longer hands-on work experience than traditional four-month internships.

Internships are paid positions and more than 70 percent of all Schulich students participate in the program.

Students apply for internships in their third year and begin work placement after completing their third year of study. They then return to complete their final year of study and graduate.
