CAE launches support and scholarship program for technicians working on its flight simulators

 CAE announced recently the launch of the CAE Tech: Program your career!  support and scholarship program, thus showing its commitment to work-integrated learning.

This program aims to encourage future technicians of varying backgrounds to begin their careers with CAE. Students who are passionate about IT, software development, digital technologies, systems integration, and avionics are invited to register in order to kick their career into high gear.

To launch the program, CAE worked with the following Quebec-based CEGEPs: André-Laurendeau, Bois-de-Boulogne, Édouard-Montpetit and its affiliated École nationale d’aérotechnique (ÉNA), John-Abbott and Montmorency, in collaboration with their respective foundation.

 Every year for three years, CAE will offer the following to two students registered full-time from each participating institution:

1 - A $1,000 scholarship.

2 - A $300 scholarship per session for student tuition fees, for a maximum of six semesters;

paid summer internships or jobs;

3 - An opportunity for an on-call work contract during the school year until the students complete their program. CAE will give priority to the interns’ studies and agrees to conform to their school schedule.

4 - An opportunity for a full-time employment offer at the end of their studies.

5 - Mentorship services to guide students during their participation in the program.

In total, 30 students will benefit from this program. The admission of scholarship recipients into the program will take into account CAE’s values of diversity and inclusion.

“As a world leader in training, we are very proud to present the CAE Tech: Program your career! initiative in order to support the development of technical careers and work-integrated learning. This program distinguishes itself in particular by the highly valuable training, mentorship and experience that will be provided to each scholarship recipient.

The aerospace industry is rapidly evolving and we need technicians to help us meet our growth objectives and support our efforts around the digital transformation. By joining our company, considered a leader in innovation, scholarship recipients will become key players in this transformation,” said Pascal Grenier, Vice President, Global Operations, Technologies and Innovation at CAE.
