ENCQOR 5G TalentEdge Internships

The ENCQOR 5G Young Talent Development Program has been designed to curate the next generation of highly skilled talent to focus on 5G, wireless and digital technologies at Ontario-based SMEs. The internships support students and recent graduates of Ontario universities and colleges. Projects will tap into world-class talent coming out of Ontario's publicly-funded post-secondary institutions and strengthen the capacity of small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to develop new 5G products, services, and processes. Internships are intended to provide participants with a unique learning opportunity as well as hands-on industry experience.
