Science Internship Program - for students

Message from Jeff Hutter, Associate Dean Academic
In a time of competitive recruitment, I invite you to consider participating in the Science Internship Program. This opportunity to integrate a significant external work-related experience into your academic program will give you valuable professional experience, which will result in a better-rounded education, and a competitive edge upon graduation.
The Faculty of Science combines award-winning educators, cutting-edge research and a wide range of programs to provide exceptional learning opportunities for students. Employers find that our undergraduate students are well-educated, skilled and motivated. Our Interns bring initiative and energy to the workplace.
This is your chance to take part in an exciting venture!

The Science Internship Program is Western’s cooperative education opportunity for undergraduate Science/BMSc students. It allows qualified Western University Science students to work in paid, career related placements for an extended period of time, at a senior point in their academic studies. Under the Science Internship Program students work full-time for a term of 8-16 months , following the third year of study, before returning to Western to complete the final year of a 4-year undergraduate Science degree. As with a traditional co-op degree, graduation is delayed by one year while the student gains valuable work experience. For more information please see the brochure here.

Employers from the private, public or not-for-profit sectors may create internship opportunities for students in any of the departments in the Life, Mathematical and Computational, or Physical Sciences.
