If you operate a business in the geomatics, geology, mining, forestry or energy industry, you could get up to $13,200 to hire a recent university or college graduate in a natural science field for an internship of up to 52 weeks.
If you are interested in the mechanical maintenance industry, why not consider the Mechanical Technician (Co-op) program? This program prepares you for work in the industrial mechanical maintenance field. You will learn the basic functions of pipefitting, welding, rigging, electrical and machining. A hands-on learning environment allows you to learn to install, assemble, maintain and commission mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, lubrication, cooling and exhaust systems in industrial plants.
Keep the wheels in motion. Our two to three year Mechanical Engineering Technology program trains you to provide technical support and services in the design, development, maintenance and testing of machines, components, tools, heating and ventilation systems. In your first year, you'll learn the basics of mechanical engineering technology. In your second year, you'll learn advanced machine design, computer-aided drawings and specifications, building systems including HVAC, and engineering manufacturing operations and processes.
Be part of the growing energy industry with our three-year Industrial Control Technology (Co-op) program, which combines classroom and co-op training to give you skills to repair, maintain, calibrate, adjust and install industrial measuring and control equipment. If you’re employed in maintenance, you’re responsible for keeping control systems operating properly. If you’re employed in technical sales, you assess the needs of the customer and supply equipment to meet those needs.
Every time something is built, created or made in a mill or factory, a chemical process is used that someone needs to manage. In the Chemical Technology program, you will provide technical assistance, modify techniques and procedures in laboratory and plant operations, install and maintain complex equipment and conduct chemical analyses. You’ll also specialize in chemical research, pilot-plant operations, quality control and process industries.
If you would like to be an integral part of planning and problem-solving in mills, power plants, oil production and many other industries, our Power Engineering Technology (Co-op) program is for you. This program will allow you to develop new engineering skills through lab-work in thermodynamics, applied mechanics and electro-technology. Combine on-the-job work experience with classroom-based instruction on analytical and diagnostic techniques applied to power engineering problem solving and the study of power plant management principles.
The Small Business Internship Program enables small and medium-sized businesses to obtain funding to hire post-secondary students for 12-week full-time internships in a field related to information and communication technology.
"The RBC Aboriginal Training Program in Museum Practices offers professional and technical training for First Nations, Métis and Inuit participants. It is the only program of its kind in Canada.
