Process and Timeline

Program approval and work requirements

As the coronavirus pandemic has proven to be ever-evolving, approval for the program to proceed will be re-evaluated at the start of the program.

Please also note that summer students will be required to work at the Aramco facility — working from home is not an option without strong justification and an approval from the department manager. Should a student be asked to quarantine while an active participant in the program, this time will be unpaid.
