Mechanical engineering


Many factors have affected energy transformation processes and mechanical systems in recent years. Industrial growth constantly requires more power and more productivity, and energy-related environmental challenges require us to optimize our resources and innovate in the areas of transportation, manufacturing production, and energy production.

The Master's program enables engineers and other professionals to specialize in mechanical engineering and to become proficient in technology transfer related to the industry.

In this program, students acquire advanced knowledge in mechanical engineering and develop the skills required to identify the technological requirements of specific companies. They also learn to define, justify, plan and complete an implementation project involving existing technology or applied research or development projects in the field of mechanical engineering.

An example of mechanical engineering

How can we help companies to manufacture quality parts at an acceptable cost while guaranteeing optimal productivity and preserving the health and safety of workers? Traditionally, the quality and price of a product have been priority factors in the development of mathematical models. Today, the development of a holistic approach that includes occupational health and safety and the environment has become essential.

Clean parts tooling without the use of toxic lubricants or the creation of harmful dust while generating a minimum amount of sound pollution has become a market imperative. In fact, many government standards call for companies to improve their production methods in order to reduce indirect health and environmental costs, and thereby maintain their competitiveness.

Clean and high-performing tooling is the passion of Professor Victor Songmene. Since his arrival at ÉTS, he has focused his work in the private sector and his expertise in mechanical engineering on reconciling productivity with sustainable development. Robotic deburring and parts finishing, the machinability of materials, and the performance of new alloys from a perspective of tooling speed and the reduction of nanoparticles produced by plants at the source are some examples of projects piloted by Professor Songmene.
