The Professional Experience Year Internship Program

During their Professional Experience Year (PEY) internship, students take a year off from their studies to gain hands-on, practical, and challenging experience related to their discipline. If you have a position that meets the criteria below, please post your opportunity on our online Engineering Career Centre Career Portal, where eligible students can view and apply.

  • Students are available for 12 – 16 month internships. The internships can start between May 2018 and September 2018 and end between May 2019 and September 2019.
  • For companies located in the USA, students can complete a maximum 12 month internship due to visa requirements. For a shorter term, please visit our 4 month Engineering Summer Internship Program (eSIP) for details.
  • Students must work full-time during their internship. They will not be enrolled in core classes during this time, as their sole focus is on the work experience. Students may occasionally enroll in an elective course in consultation with their supervisor and at the discretion of the Director.
