Any time after completing the first year of the Engineering program, the
optional Engineering Externship Program (EEP) allows Engineering students the opportunity to pursue either a four-month Local Certificate program or an eight-month Graduate certificate program. The EEP program is currently linked to the "Practical Elements of Mechanical Engineering (PEME)" program offered at Fanshawe College of Applied Arts and Technology.
Engineering students who wish to exercise this option must apply for the EEP course ES 2274A/B - Mechanical and Materials Engineering Externship Program. Western Engineering controls entry into the program. Prerequisites are: 60% YWA with no failed courses. If accepted into the program, students will take the courses specified by the PEME certificate program linked to ES 2274A/B (Local Certificate) and ES 2275A/B (Graduate Certificate).
