HOW LONG IS AN INTERNSHIP?

It depends. The average duration of the internship and Co-op provided at Alpin is three, six and twelve months, however we are also comfortable with more creative co-op options. At Alpin, we offer internship opportunities throughout the year, during the academic year as well as during the summer.

Shorter period of internship aren’t typically granted due to the fact that it does not allow the intern to immerse themselves into their projects and to receive an all-round experience within such short duration.

WHO QUALIFIES AS AN INTERN?

Internship applicants, are typically of a junior or senior level within their undergraduate studies or are graduate students (Masters or PhD) enrolled in an accredited college. We are also interested in recent graduates and very talented individuals who are interested in one of our fields of practice.

Candidates are to be within the field of study of Engineering, Architecture, Construction Management, Building Physics and Business.

Motivated individuals and self-starters with strong attention to detail and who are “hands-on” with demonstrated strong problem solving skills. Our internship program embraces the Learn by Doing approach to training.

Willingness and ability to immerse oneself into their project.

The opportunities we have are tremendous. We have not seen this rate of change in the development industry since the invention of the wheel. But when I really think about it, we are all here at Alpin because we share a common believe in our ability to keep pushing the industry ever forward in terms of technical construction, efficiency and sustainability
