Engineer Internship (Former Employee) –  Saint-hubert, QC23 February 2013
The supervisor I was working under was very flexible and since I was working mostly on my own I could work at hours that would be beneficial for me. I would leave home after traffic hour and return again after traffic hour. The main joy of working at the Canadian Space Agency is the tech resources that are there to help you. The electrical technician, the machinist and all the other techs are there to help you if you need it to get the work done.
