Professional or Research Internship

Internship is a self-driven two 3-credit course requirement for students in the Master of Quantum Computing students' program. Students gain 6 – 16 weeks of paid industry work experience allowing them to integrate work experience into their degree, establish a professional network, and explore possible career paths and options.


What are the benefits?

Internships provide students the opportunity to maximize their student experience by offering paid, hands-on experience in an industry as part of their study program. As an intern, you have the opportunity to explore a career path, and discover personal strengths and interests, all while building a valuable network of professional contacts and securing strong references. 

Who is eligible?

Students enrolled in the Master of Quantum Computing program are eligible upon the successful completion of 30 units of coursework. These consist of 12 units of the Graduate Certificate in Quantum Computing, 12 units of the Graduate Diploma in Quantum Computing, as well as the course QUAC 691, prior to the internship course.  

For international students, a co-op work permit is required. At the start of the program, the Graduate Internship Coordinator provides a letter of support to include in their application for a co-op work permit. The processing time can be lengthy. To avoid delays, students should apply immediately after receiving their letter of support.   

What fees are associated with internship?

There is a tuition fee associated with the Internship course.  Please see the University Calendar for details.
