Student life is always buzzing at Polytechnique Montréal!

Technical clubs bring together true enthusiasts from all branches of engineering. Their common goal is to carry out projects to participate in provincial, national and international competitions taking place on land, at sea and in the air. Polytechnique Montréal supports these students by providing funds as well as the space and equipment to carry out their work. 


At Polytechnique Montréal, anything is possible… or almost! More than forty committees bring life to the student experience throughout the year in a wide variety of fields. Each program also has an education committee, whose mandate is to defend the interests of students in all matters related to education. Your time at Polytechnique will provide you with the perfect opportunity to get involved in a committee whose mission speaks to your interests, forging ties with other students who share the same passions as you do.
