Open House

Open House is the perfect opportunity to discover the various engineering training programs, high-level research activities, bustling student life and exceptional study environment offered by Polytechnique.

The largest engineering school in Québec opens its doors!

Tuesday, January 31, 2017, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The Open House event is the perfect opportunity to explore Polytechnique Montréal and confirm your choice of program before submitting an application for admission. Over a hundred members of the faculty, staff and students will be there to answer your questions regarding the content and characteristics of the twelve engineering training programs (bachelor’s), the graduate studies programs (master’s, DESS, doctorate) and the continuing studies programs offered to professionals (certificates, undergraduate microprograms). It will also be possible for you to learn more about eligibility conditions, our paid internships program’s flexibility, international exchanges, financial aid, housing, academic success support, student life and employment prospects for our graduates.

    Each year, the Université de Montréal and HEC Montréal hold an Open House simultaneously. A free shuttle service is offered on campus to facilitate the movement of visitors from one establishment to another.
