3rd year Bachelor student 2017

"The strength of this course lies in the projects we work on throughout the program"

« The Bachelor’s is a vocational degree as, from the first year, we are required to complete internships that enable us to specialize in the field that interests us the most. The final-year work-study internship enables us to work towards our chosen career.

I think the strength of this course lies in the projects we work on throughout the program. These projects are very varied and can take place within the school as part of classes or outside of the school during national or regional events (e.g. United Nations Climate Change Conference, PROdurable fair, La Pluie et le Beau Temps fair). »
