About CENGN

CENGN’s mission is to accelerate the growth of the Canadian Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector. Beyond supporting our small and medium enterprise customers, training professionals in the industry, and working with our globally recognized ecosystem of members and partners, we develop student talent through our co-op and internship opportunities.

Students play a big role helping CENGN achieve its mission. We want to ensure our organization is training the next generation of talent so CENGN students can make a big impact in the industry after working with us. That’s why we work with colleges and universities across Canada seeking students ready to roll up their sleeves and contribute to Canadian innovation.

Life as a Student

CENGN works hard to ensure a great experience for every student. We make sure students are given real and impactful work that contributes directly to the company’s success whether it’s working on our commercial-grade infrastructure in the engineering department, organizing events and building our brand for marketing, or keeping things on track in HR or Finance.

Each semester we hire 10-12 students who become a part of the CENGN team. Students get the opportunity to learn from other students, full-time staff, and our executives. CENGN actively participates in events and provides networking opportunities with our project and member companies for future employment and internship options.

Cloud Networking Boot Camp

Our technical students undergo a 3-week boot camp to get up to speed on cutting-edge networking technologies before getting to work on our commercial-grade infrastructure. The boot camp provides training on Linux, Docker, Kubernetes and OpenStack, as well as other networking technologies to ensure you’re ready to make an impact at CENGN and are employable for the most technical companies.
