The field of engineering is becoming increasingly popular in Québec and it goes without saying that Polytechnique Montréal is taking an active role in making this profession a highly attractive one.
Founded in 1873, Polytechnique Montréal is one of Canada’s most notable engineering education institutions as it offers 16 specializations at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. It is also one of Canada's top teaching and research institutions. It also ranks first in Quebec for the size of its student body and the scope of its research activities.
Polytechnique Montréal has a real vision, with a research budget of $82 million, a proud home to 19 industrial chairs and no fewer than 24 Canada Research Chairs all supervised by professors and researchers recognized in their fields of expertise.
