Industry-driven, project-based learning
In order to enhance and complement the education of undergraduate students, the Institute conducts collaborative, industry-driven design and research projects of 500 to 1000 hours per year. The students, selected among the top undergraduate students in the Faculty of Engineering & Computer Science, are supervised by aerospace industry engineers and Concordia professors. Progress meetings are conducted at CIADI to expose the students to the full breadth of projects undertaken by their classmates in other areas and in other partner companies. The Institute provides, through some preliminary industry research projects, "an initiation to research" for some students who want to pursue graduate studies in aerospace, as part of the Consortium de recherche et d'innovation en aérospatiale au Québec (CRIAQ).
