This program combines electronic, mechanical, thermal, computer, automation and photonic technologies. It provides students with a hands-on approach in which they not only learn about science and technology, but also apply what they are learning. It is the only Engineering Technologies program of its kind in Québec. Small classes give students the opportunity to work one-on-one with faculty while exploring the rapidly evolving fields of applied engineering technologies. Courses will be given on the John Abbott campus with opportunities to use the OPTECH Montréal facilities situated at Cégep André-Laurendeau.
TWO EXIT PROFILES TO CHOOSE FROM:
By default, students enter the Photonics profile in their first semester. At the end of semester four, they have the opportunity to choose either the Photonics or Energy Management exit profile for the last year of study.
Photonics, the study of generating and controlling photons, includes opto-electronics, fibre-optics and imaging systems, and has applications in diverse fields including telecommunications and medical technologies.
ENERGY MANAGEMENT PROFILE:
Energy Management, the study of energy generation and use, includes the engineering techniques used to measure, analyze and optimize the energy consumption associated with the heating, cooling, ventilation, electrical, and lighting systems found in residential, commercial and industrial facilities.
STUDENTS IN ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGIES LEARN:
- a wide range of modern electronic, mechanical, optical, thermal and robotic engineering subjects,
- engineering-related computer skills;
- to understand complex technologies using systematic and logical approaches;
- to design, build, and repair circuits and machines;
- where industry uses technology.
The Engineering Technologies department organizes a showcase of students’ works where everyone is invited to attend. Participating students at the EngTech EXPO have the opportunity to present their projects and answer visitors’ questions on the conception, design, build and operation of their devices which allows them to demonstrate application of their acquired knowledge during the program and to develop their communications skills.
