Summer Internship Program 

A full time summer internship is an excellent way to take what you learn in your academic studies & apply it in a work environment. We are excited to present a variety of summer internships available to students from ALL disciplines and academic years. Some employers may have a preference as to educational background, others are looking for the best student, willing to learn and excited to take on new challenges this summer. You must be a full-time, returning student to qualify. Note that Summer 2020 internships are now closed. The next round of Summer Internships will be posted in January, 2021. Questions? Email careers@mta.ca.
