École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) is a public engineering school in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Founded in 1974, the École de technologie supérieure is part of the Université du Québec system. Specialized in applied teaching in engineering and technology transfer to companies, it teaches engineers and researchers who are recognized for their practical and innovative approach.

In any given year, 25% of all engineers receiving a diploma from an engineering school or faculty in the province of Quebec graduate from the ÉTS.[1] Hence, it is ranked first in Quebec and fourth in Canada for the total number of engineering diplomas awarded annually.

Facilities[edit]

The main address of ÉTS is 1100 Notre-Dame Street West in Montreal's Griffintown neighbourhood, the site of a former O'Keefe Brewery, which was transformed to house the school. It has two buildings devoted to education programs and research activities.

Programs[edit]

The school features cooperative education in all of its undergraduate programs. The bachelor's programs have all been accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB). Each year, the ETS graduates the largest number of engineers in Quebec and third largest in Canada. Students can choose to specialize in the following disciplines: Construction Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Information Technology Engineering, Software Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Production Engineering, Industrial Engineering[2] It also offers multiple master's degree programs and a doctorate in engineering. International students at the masters and doctorate levels are mostly coming from Latin America, Europe, North Africa and Eastern Europe. The main research fields are energy, environment, manufacturing and fabrication, health technologies, entreprises systems, IT, micro-electronics and telecommunications, aerospace manufacturing and avionics, project management, innovation management and many more. [3]

Research[edit]

The ETS student-run technical clubs participate in international competitions. The world's fastest human powered submarine, Omer [1], was developed by one such club. An Autonomous Underwater Vehicle named S.O.N.I.A.[2], an Unmanned aerial vehicle Dronolab[3], a walking robot [4], Eclipse [5] the solar-powered car, Chinook [6] the world champion wind powered vehicle and many others have won countless prizes in international competitions over the years. The school also houses a concrete canoe club, the reigning Canadian champions three years running.

Sports[edit]

The school is represented in Canadian Interuniversity Sport by the ETS Piranhas.

Student association[edit]

The school's student union is called the Association des étudiants de l'École de technologie supérieure (AÉÉTS) [7].
