If a student's academic performance in the third year results in the student being required to withdraw from the Schulich School of Engineering, or being placed on probation, the student will be required to withdraw from the Engineering Internship Program. Students who have been required to withdraw from the Engineering Internship Program will no longer have access to the program's job search systems or support. If the student is required to withdraw from the Engineering Internship Program but has already accepted a placement, the employer will be informed that the student is no longer registered in the Internship Program.
Students who have completed the twelve month minimum requirement will not be permitted to apply for further internship positions.
Students who have accepted a placement obtained through the Co-op/Internship Placement process are required to register in the Internship courses corresponding to the length of the placement. Students failing to do so will be registered by the office of Cooperative Education in the appropriate course(s) and appropriate fees will be payable.
In order to have the Internship designation appear on the BSc parchment, a student must complete the twelve-month minimum requirement and pass the requisite internship courses.
Each work experience is supervised by a Professional Engineer in the host company. Normally the entire internship year is spent with the same employer. Students are required to present letter reports to the Engineering Internship Office at the end of each four month period during the internship year. In addition, a comprehensive report on the student's work experience is required at the end of the internship assignment. This comprehensive report must be approved by the student's work supervisor and is marked and graded by members of the School.
