Main building

lassonde As in the past, the visions of builders continue to transform Québec society. This building, at the heart of the country’s economic and scientific development, has trained highly qualified engineers and specialists since 1956. Each year, close to 6,000 students are welcomed here, where they are taught the new realities of engineering. The addition of the Laboratoire de structures Hydro-Québec has expanded the building. Students primarily learn about the structural aspects of major civil engineering constructions in this international research building.
