École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) or School of higher technologies, founded in 1974, is a public research university in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and affiliated to the Université du Québec system.
The school is specialized in applied teaching and research in engineering as well as transferring advanced technologies to companies, where professors, engineers and researchers are recognized for their practical, industrial, and innovative approaches.
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 and ranks second in Canada for the number of bachelor's degrees in engineering awarded at the undergraduate level. Hence, it is ranked first in Quebec and second in Canada for the total number of engineering diplomas awarded annually.
- Campus La Patrie: 1974 to 1985
ÉTS opened its doors in 1974 on rue Sainte-Catherine, in Montreal, and received 28 undergraduate students in technology (mechanics and electricity). The ÉTS Student Association (AEETS) was created the following year. In 1977, the diploma (B. Tech.) was awarded to the first 14 graduates. Bachelor's degrees in construction technology and automated production were added later on.
- Henri-Julien Campus: 1985 to 1997
The first student club (Mini-Baja ÉTS) was created in 1989. The same year, ÉTS opened its first bachelor's degrees in engineering: construction engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, automated production engineering (B.Eng. ). In 1990, they were accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (BCAPI). In 1991, the master's program (systems technology) will be offered. The Center for Technological Entrepreneurship (Centech) was created in 1994. The same year, the students created the Student Grouping Program for International Cooperation (PRÉCI).
- Notre Dame Campus: 1998 to 2014
In 1998, ÉTS inaugurated the first student residences and several phases were added over the decades. The first doctoral degrees in engineering were awarded in 2000 and research professors are increasingly active. The first research chair was created in 2001 (in wireless telecommunications). The same year, the Sports Center created the Les Piranhas club. In 2004, the Department of Software Engineering and Information Technology Engineering was opened and a new pavilion was inaugurated (Pavilion B). In 2007, a major expansion of the main pavilion was completed. In 2008, ÉTS adopted a sustainable development policy. Many study programs are added over the years, as well as student clubs.
- The campus expands: 2015 to present
In 2015, the campus expanded further with the opening of the Student House (Pavilion E). In 2018, the former Dow Planetarium was completely renovated and the technology business accelerator Centech moved there. ÉTS adopts an urban development plan for the campus in order to integrate it harmoniously into the neighborhood. The Formula ÉTS student club is moving from the combustion engine to the electric motor starting in 2019. In 2020 a new pavilion was opened (Pavilion D). In 2021, ÉTS achieved carbon neutrality, nearly nine years before the deadline it had set. In 2023, major real estate projects are still in the pipeline.
