Internships At AlbertaSat

AlbertaSat provides internship opportunities for its volunteer members, typically in the form of full-time employment positions each summer. These students ensure development on our satellite missions doesn’t falter between semesters. Students interested in working at AlbertaSat and getting their foot in the door in the Canadian aerospace industry should consider beginning on the team as a volunteer, and keeping an eye out for AlbertaSat’s summer positions, which are typically posted internally, or through the University of Alberta’s Engineering Co-op Office.
