Important Notice : SOW Projects for Fall 2019
The management of AÉROÉTS wishes to inform you that there will be no "SOW" type projects offered through the Institut de conception et d'innovation en aérospatiale (ICIA) for the Fall 2019 session. ÉTS is still a member of the Montreal Aerospace Institutes (MAI), but the "SOW internship" portion of this partnership no longer exists. AÉROÉTS will continue to offer conferences, industry visits, networking activities and other opportunities related to aerospace engineering. To find an aerospace internship, we encourage you to apply for the many projets offered through the Service de l'enseignement coopératif's platform. We take this occasion to inform you that ÉTS is not a partner of the Canadian Mobility and Aerospace Institute (CMAI). We do not endorse the projects that may be posted on this organisation's web portal (called "SPOT"). If you choose to participate in the projects posted on the CMAI's SPOT platform, you will be solely responsible and ÉTS will not have any responsibility or involvement in such a project.
