Work-integrated learning

Along with Seattle and Toulouse, the Greater Montreal region is home to one of the world's leading aerospace hubs and has the second-largest density of aerospace jobs in the world. The Concordia Institute of Aerospace Design & Innovation (CIADI) promotes awareness and provides leading edge know-how among engineering students engaged in aerospace.

Through internships, organized visits, tours, special training courses, innovative education programs, and increased community engagement, including the engagement of student groups and societies and curriculum expansion through partner collaboration, CIADI students gain valuable experiential learning opportunities that better prepare them for success in the fast paced globally competitive aerospace sector.

Student societies

Student life learning

The Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science boasts a number of student societies that work on projects that apply theory in practice, often designed for competitions. The teamwork experience in these groups is typically unforgettable, not to mention the many prizes that Concordia students win! UAV Concordia (unmanned aerial vehicles) is dedicated to designing, building and outfitting drones, from making them fly to giving them specified functionality, and offers students a chance to gain hands-on experience in the area of flight control.  Software Engineering and Computer Science Society is an academically driven society focused on programming, and offers a wide variety of events aimed at equipping students with tools to reach their academic and professional goals.

NCADE program

A truly hands-on approach to learning about aerospace.

The NSERC Chair in Aerospace Design Engineering (NCADE), led by Dr. Catharine Marsden, is a unique program that spans all categories of experiential learning, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
