Aerospace Engineering (Co-op)
Joshua Cayetano-Emond got involved in student life as soon as he started at Concordia and participated in many engineering competitions. In his last year, he represented Concordia at the Compétition québécoise d’ingénierie (CQI) in scientific communication and was the director for the national Troitsky Bridge Building Competition.
As a Co-op student, Cayetano-Emond had two internships in his field of study. The first was at Dassault Systèmes in Montreal and the second was at Airbus Helicopters in Germany. He was recently awarded the Aerospace Engineering Medal for his outstanding grades.
Three keys to a good education
- Seek to learn outside the classroom. Internships and clubs are great for that!
- Be able to accept your failures — it’s even better if you can embrace them.
- Be passionate for what you are learning.
Two lessons learned at Concordia University
- A little bit of work every day pays off much more than cramming everything at the last minute.
- There’s always something to learn from other people so try to approach others.
Next great goal
- My next great goal is to continue my studies by pursuing a master’s in mechanical engineering at École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland.
Advice for future grads
- Sleep more than you study, study more than you party, but party as much as you can. It’s all about a proper life balance.
