Each year, the Engineering Career Centre (ECC) helps employers fill internships and other openings by matching them with students who are ready to put their skills to work.

Whatever the job (big or small, short or lengthy), the ECC can help employers like you regenerate your workforce by introducing you to future Engineering leaders. The Centre’s services help your business or organization by giving you access to leading-edge and best-in-class staff.
