The optional Engineering Externship Program (EEP) allows Mechanical and Materials Engineering students the opportunity to pursue up to an eight-month certificate program after second or third year at an educational institution which will offer courses related to a practical Certificate Program. The EEP program is currently linked to the “Practical Elements in Mechanical Engineering (PEME)” program offered at Fanshawe College of Applied Arts and Technology.
Mechanical Engineering students who wish to exercise this option must apply for the EEP Course ES 2275 – Mechanical and Materials Engineering Externship Program following their second or third year of Mechanical Engineering. 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 2275.
