The Department of electric engineering is proud to announce the creation of the new concentration embarked Systems for the aerospace industry of its high school diploma in electric engineering.
This concentration arises from an insistent request of the industry for all the universities in the effect to train better the engineers in the field of the embarked systems, the absolutely strategic specialization for the aerospace industry. Planes became immense networks of complex systems which have to communicate between them and be joined in a security way. These systems are mainly electric, electronic and computing and are designed to operate often critical features.
The embarked systems now control everything on a plane, including the mechanical systems, and that is why the industry considers the engineer of systems as a key resource for its development. Such engineers were identified as the future of the profession in aerospace engineering during forums industry / universities. It is planned that the hiring in this domain will be very important during the next years.
This new concentration allows the Department of electric engineering to occupy a strategic space of training in the service of an industry where Quebec is recognized as a leader. So, the ÉTS is now capable of offering an attractive and very promising training to the young people who are interested in a career in avionics.
The concentration offers three new compulsory courses, which are:
ELE452 Principles of the systems of the aeronautics (3 cr.) Summer 2012
ELE641 Embarked systems and standards in aerospace industry (3 cr.) Autumn 2012
ELE674 Advanced embarked systems (3 cr.) Winter 2013
And propose two new optional courses which are the result of the adaptation for the high school diploma (objectives, works and examinations adapted to the 1st cycle) of two existing courses offered to the control in aerospace engineering:
ELE452 Principles of the systems of the aeronautics (3 cr.) Automne 2012
ELE641 Embarked systems and standards in aerospace industry (3 cr.) Hiver 2013
