NTCO undergraduate applications


The NTCO advantage: Research experience, professional skills training, industry experience and connections

Student internships with our industrial partners will provide hands on experience in industry and the benefit of supervision from experts in cutting-edge instrumentation laboratories.
A typical undergraduate work term is 4 months, with a minium 6 week internship spent onsite at the company. The internship is a required component of the NTCO program. 

Undergraduate student interns will be awarded a stipend of $8000. In some instances the company may top up the student salary. Travel funding will also be provided by NTCO. 

Professional and technical skills training workshops are offered annually at the NTCO AGM, and travel funding will be provided to any students interested in attending. Funds to attend the annual Dunlap Summer School will also be made available.

Eligibility
Students will be selected for their academic skills and interests in astronomical instrumentation, and projects will be selected that best match the student’s skill set. In order to be considered for admission into the NTCO-CREATE program, a student must be enrolled in a relevant academic program and have the support of a NTCO faculty member.
The NTCO program is committed to diversity and inclusivity.

Application Procedure
Undergraduate applications are accepted on an ongoing basis throughout the year.
