Engage with Joint Program students

A great way to promote your internships and full-time jobs is to meet with students. We offer various opportunities to interact with students.

Internships & Co-ops
Intern and Co-op positions allow employers to evaluate potential permanent hires over an extended period of time and provide a continual pathway of bright engineers.
