The optional Engineering Externship Program (EEP) allows Mechanical Engineering students the opportunity to pursue an eight-month certificate program after second year or third year at an educational institution which will offer courses related to a practical Certificate Program.
Mechanical Engineering students who wish to exercise this option must apply for the EEP course ES 2275 - Mechanical & 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 certificate program linked to ES 2275.
