The position in discussion did not specifically mentioned that remote work or flexible hours are offered on the posting. As this is a classic engineering office job. However most of the work is on the computer, and the office does have laptops which are given to those going on trips. It is the classic everyone comes in at either 8 or 9 and leaves by 6 kind of atmosphere.
I will not be the only intern, but I would be the one with the most experience. I was wondering if it is appropriate to ask if I can work flexible hours or do part of the work remote? I would be a full time intern, and I plan to take course(s) related to my degree in parallel to the internship.
Partly due to student loans, partly because I would have a significant amount of free time in comparison to being a full time student, and it would be more productive and better for my study habits if there isn't a large gap in studying. As well, the course(s) in question fill up to capacity during fall and winter, but are also offered during the summer which have lower enrollment.
Additional notes: this is a paid internship. It is not software engineering. My commute time would be 3-4 hours / day
