By successfully completing three certificate programs totalling 90 different course credits, a student can get a Bachelor of Science. The Bachelor of Science will bear the name of all three certificates and the date each was earned. The Bachelor of Science degree obtained through the accumulation of certificates is not recognized by the Ordre des Ingénieurs du Québec (OIQ).


To get the Bachelor of Science, all of the following requirements must be met:

  • The student must have completed three certificates whose combined courses total at least 90 separate credits; credits from one course can only be counted once even if they were used for two of the degrees leading to the Bachelor of Science;
  • At least two of these certificates must have been awarded by Polytechnique Montréal. Neither the engineering development certificate for foreign engineering graduates nor the engineering certificate can contribute to the Bachelor of Science;
  • Certificates that are not completed at Polytechnique Montréal, Université de Montréal or HEC Montréal must be the subject of an application for program recognition; the application for recognition can only be sent after the corresponding certificate for that program has been obtained from another academic institution (see Article 18.3);
  • The student must meet the French-language proficiency requirements specified in Regulation 14;
  • A maximum of 10 years may elapse between the date of granting of the first certificate and the date of granting of the last certificate.
