An internship is a professionally supervised, career-related position designed to offer second or third year students the opportunity to learn about current advances, practices and technologies in business and industry. In return, students bring to the workplace creativity and a fresh approach, a high level of enthusiasm and commitment, a drive to succeed and a pronounced willingness to learn.
Due to the longer work term (compared to a four-month co-op), employers can maximize their investment in training and resources. Students can be offered the opportunity to manage more extensive and significant projects.
