Queen's Undergraduate Internship Program (QUIP)
The Queen’s Undergraduate Internship Program (QUIP) provides students with a 12-16 month work experience. QUIP internships are paid, professionally supervised, career-related positions designed to offer second or third year students the opportunity to learn about current advances, practices and technologies in business and industry. The program is open to students in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science (domestic and international), Faculty of Arts and Science (domestic and international), School of Computing (domestic and international) and the School of Business (domestic only; not for credit). Due to the longer work term (compared to a 4-month co-op), employers are highly motivated to maximize their time and investment. This means that Internship students are offered the opportunity to manage more extensive and significant projects.
