Mixing academics, practical learning and sustainability for a meaningful, motivating educational experience
Loric St-Onge worked diligently all through secondary school to earn top marks in physics and calculus and meet his goal of studying engineering at university. The biggest payoff for him now that he’s in Mechanical Engineering at Concordia is the chance to take his powers of concentration and apply them to hands-on, fun projects.
As a member of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), St-Onge builds radio-controlled airplane models designed to carry the weightiest load possible for the SAE’s “heavy lift” competition.
He’s also putting his knowledge to work in service of social and environmental causes. St-Onge is part of a group of students from across all four Faculties looking at food security and rooftop gardening.
For him, Concordia is a place where academics, practical learning and sustainability are all part of the mix in a meaningful, motivating educational experience.
