Students who have worked at MDA consistently rank us as one of the best companies to work for. Here are some comments from students who have worked with us:
"MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates is indeed a great Canadian high-tech company, always keeping me interested throughout my internship. MDA has taught me things I never did learn and never could learn in school. But beyond my learning, MDA has a great employee environment that made my time with the company a comfortable and fun experience."
"During my 16-month internship, I was primarily involved with two of MDA's medical initiatives which have presented exciting challenges in creativity and innovation. These projects exercised my ability to think outside the box as well as strengthened my basic engineering skills. The various teams that I have been a part of have been a pleasure to work with. Overall, my internship at MDA has been an great experience."
"Working in the R&D department at MDA has been a very rewarding experience for me as a student. Being a member in a fairly small team enabled me to take on responsibility in a variety of tasks, including software development, circuit design, building hardware, and testing robots. Throughout my work term, I felt like I had a significant impact with my team and was able to apply some of my knowledge and skills to contribute to the team's projects including crime-scene modelling robots, an underwater scene modeler and an optical odometer."
