The Professional Experience Year (PEY) Internship Program offered through Engineering Career Centre (ECC) allows students to apply their engineering knowledge in a 12-16 month project-based professional internship. The length of the internship offers students sufficient time to become involved in large-scale projects, build relationships with employers, and reach professional milestones. Students who elect to participate in this optional program make industry contacts, gain valuable career skills and significant professional experience before graduation. The PEY internship program is over 30 years old and during this time it has earned an outstanding reputation in both academic and industry circles. It offers students an exceptional education, a range of engineering related career paths to choose from, and strong, established industry partnerships. It also provides a strong practical foundation for individuals who are interested in completing graduate studies. Students who participate in the program are enrolled in the nine Engineering programs, as well as Computer Science, Mathematics, Toxicology, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Commerce, and other Arts & Science programs. Students register for PEY in their 2nd or 3rd year of study and complete their internship during the following academic year. For the current PEY 2012 - 2013 internship year, 740 students are in placements at over 200 companies. Some of our past out of province and international placement locations include: Alberta, British Columbia, Newfoundland, Belgium, Chile, India, Japan, Taiwan, Switzerland, United States, China, Hong Kong, Finland, Singapore and Indonesia. The average internship salary for 2012/2013 was $45,000.

The Engineering Summer Internship Program (eSIP) is a paid summer co-op program offered through the Engineering Career Centre. It is available to eligible engineering students in year 2 or 3 of study, including engineering international students. eSIP is more akin to a traditional co-op placement, where students work for four months and thus serves as an introductory career development program for participants. Through formalized and interactive workshops and individual counseling appointments, students are introduced to concepts and tools to prepare them for the workplace. The majority of applicants are in their year 2 of study, for which eSIP holds particular value in preparing students to be competitive for future opportunities, such as the intensive model of the PEY internship.
