Our award-winning faculty takes pride in our innovative research and energetic, hands-on teaching. Faculty members are open, friendly and available for students. In our program, students are permitted to write all assignments and exams in either English or French and students have a great variety of choices for electives. What sets ECE at Concordia apart? Undoubtedly, it's our commitment to practical education. Companies recognize that we have labs with more of our courses, supporting our hands-on approach to engineering education.
