This training program lasts from September to November or from January to April each year. The course that is taught is certified by the Canadian and American certification process.
This course lasts 45 hours and covers the whole certified content with about 20 hours of tutorial and 20 hours of project related work. The rest is to prepare and give a presentation on the project. Projects are supplied by companies who send 2 engineers to learn with the students. The project must be preapproved by the instructor to make sure size and complexity can be managed in this context.
The course takes place on 5 Mondays, from 1h30 PM to 9h30 PM and if the optional exam is written, the student will receive the first level of certification. Mrs. Parrot gives this course since 1995.
Teams of about 5 finishing engineering students are built with one or two representatives of the companies who supply the projects.
The cost of this program, to have your project studied, is $4000 (price subject to change by the University).
