Vacation employment/Industrial experience

The Faculty of Engineering strongly recommends that all undergraduate students enrolled in four, five and six year engineering single or double degrees complete 12 weeks of engineering vacation employment. Vacation employment is an integral part of student development, and is an excellent avenue to prepare for future engineering careers by gaining experience in an industrial setting and establishing industry networks.
