The Canadian Mobility and Aerospace Institute (CMAI) is a WIL partner for the Business + Higher Education Roundtable (BHER).
The partnership between BHER and CMAI will create 7500 new WIL experiences in the transportation and aerospace industry for students across Canada. The experiences will range from full-time and part-time WIL, to capstone projects and micro-WIL opportunities. Micro-WIL experiences allow students to apply theory learned in class to real-world projects presented by employers in the sector. The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the need for a pan-Canadian expansion of online micro-WIL, given that these opportunities are more flexible and accessible for employers. Developing these quality opportunities serves as a strong foundation for expanding other types of WIL in the aerospace and mobility sector across Canada.
