Internships

Students enrolled in the Master of Engineering (MEng) and Master of Health Science (MHSc) in Clinical Engineering professional programs complete internships as part of their degree requirements.

Internship hours are reported as part of a course and treated as short-term, contract employment. We work with employers to ensure that positions are related to each program, and provide guidance on appropriate compensation and hours.

Students can seek out internships on their own, but the placement must satisfy program requirements. Final approval is required through our Academic Programs Office.

Students in both MEng and MHSc programs hold undergraduate degrees in engineering from an accredited institution as a requirement of admission.

Programs

Compensation

The recommended minimum compensation for a full-time, four-month internship is $10,000 Canadian dollars (based on a standard work week of 37.5 hours).

Research internship support may be available to employers and interns through Mitacs or the Ontario Centres of Excellence.

The intern’s direct supervisor will be asked to complete an evaluation of the student at the end of each work term.
