Here is a 3-point list of what you need to know about the junior engineer period :
  1. It is the perfect time to start applying all the knowledge you have acquired at university while taking advantage of having a full-fledged engineer there to guide you every step of the way, because junior engineers must be supervised by a full-fledged engineer.
  2. The junior engineer period lasts 36 months.[1]
  3. At the end of the junior engineer period, you will need to master the six competencies (in French) required to practice engineering.

To find out more about the junior engineer period, refer to the Guide du Futur Ingénieur (in French) or visit the Junior engineer period page on the OIQ’s Web site.
