The Professional Internship Program allows qualified students the opportunity to pursue career related positions for 12 or 16 months after completion of their second or third year of study at Queen's. (This program is available to students in all programs in the Faculty.)
Employers request applications from third year students more frequently than from second year students, but internships have been arranged for both. Job openings under this program are posted by Career Services beginning in late October.
In addition to the industrial experience for which the intern earns a salary, the Program includes prior workshops on resume preparation, interviewing, work performance, and employer expectations. Successful completion of the program requires submission of a formal report or presentation, and a satisfactory assessment of the intern's performance by the Employer. Up to twelve months of the work may meet the criteria for professional work experience required for licensure as a Professional Engineer in Canada.
The 12-month program requires registration in three courses, and the 16-month program requires registration in four courses - each course is 1-term in duration. These are: APSC 301
, APSC 302
, APSC 303
, and APSC 304
. There is a special academic fee for these courses. (See the section on Fees
in this Calendar.)
