Graduate Programs


ÉTS offers two graduate program profiles: the Master's with thesis and the Master's and other professional programs. The Master's with thesis profile is an introduction to research, while the professional profile (with project and courses) is intended for practicing engineers who wish to further develop their knowledge.

See the cross reference chart for graduate study programs


Master's degree's

Most Master's programs are offered in two modes – with thesis (M.A.Sc.) or with project (M.Eng.) – depending on the student’s personal objectives.

Aerospace engineering
Automated manufacturing engineering
Construction engineering
Electrical engineering
Environmental engineering
Information technology
Mechanical engineering
Software engineering
Engineering, with a concentration in:
       • Design and management of Canadian engineering projects
       • Renewable energy and energy efficiency
       • Occupational health and safety risk engineering
       • Innovation management
       • Engineering project management
       • Urban infrastructures management
       • International projects and global engineering
       • Telecommunications networks
       • Healthcare technology
       • Personalized study program

Students who are not able to complete the Master’s program for any reason may obtain either a short program certificate or a specialized graduate studies diploma (DESS), depending on the number of credits accumulated.



Master program for engineers trained abroad

In order to contribute to the integration of engineers trained at non-Canadian universities who are interested in embarking on an engineering career in Québec, ETS offers a customized program: Master of Engineering, with a concentration in the Design and Management of Canadian Engineering Projects.

In addition to acquiring knowledge specific to the reality of Canadian projects, this program includes support for joining the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec. Culminating in an internship or technical project, this program is geared toward the student's employability, and to his or her integration into the engineering labour market in Québec.



Specialized graduate programs (DESS) and short graduate programs

ETS offers 17 DESS programs in many fields of engineering and management, along with
26 short graduate programs. DESS programs require 30 credits, while short programs require 15 credits.

Nearly all of the short programs at ÉTS can be applied toward specialized graduate degree programs, which in turn can be applied toward Master's programs. Based on this approach, a student who completes the short program can register for a specialized graduate program or a Master's program, and all of his previously completed credits will be recognized. Inversely, a student who no longer wishes to pursue a Master's degree can apply the already accumulated credits toward a specialized graduate program.
