Students in their final semester are placed in a company to do an extensive internship or “stage” three days per week for the fifteen weeks of the semester.

Employers regard all aspects of this training as being important for future employees.

Upon graduation, a significant number of students are offered employment with their “stage” company.

This career program is open to qualified students graduating from high school, mature students returning to studies, as well as students who wish to change their field of study.
