MITACS Internship Program:
Ontario Program ( ACCELERATE):
ACCELERATE connects companies with the high-quality research expertise within the province’s universities. Graduate student interns, under the supervision of a faculty supervisor, undertake a four or eight month project which investigates a research challenge experienced by a partner company.
One half of the intern’s time is spent on site with the partner company, interacting with staff, collecting data and furthering their understanding of the challenge. The remainder of the intern’s time is spent at their university, developing a new tool, technique, methodology or solution to the partner company’s research challenge.
Companies benefit from accessing the vast intellectual capital within the province’s universities while connecting with potential future employees. Graduate interns benefit from the opportunity to apply their research skills to real-world challenges.
ACCELERATE Ontario is administered by MITACS Inc. with the financial support of the Government of Ontario. Opportunities are available in other provinces. Visit the MITACS Internship Program website for more information: http://www.mitacsinternships.ca/internship?lang=en
