Quebec Engineering Competition

The Quebec Engineering Competition is an annual event in which nearly 240 students from every Quebec engineering schools and faculties compete. Endorsed by the Quebec Confederation for Engineering Student Outreach (QCESO), the QEC aims to make shine future engineers’ knowledge and social skills through many challenges over the course of four days.

2016 Theme

This year’s QEC theme will be “Driven by Genius”. Whether we are talking about mass transportation, cars, trains, boats or planes, transport is a crucial part of our lives as citizens but also as future engineers. All engineering programs involve transport in many different ways and many of us will work in the field of transportation, which makes it a particularly interesting theme for the competition. This theme will allow participants to stand out on a wide range of problems that are current issues for our society.

Each competition will be, in one way or another, about transport. Whether in town or region, the transportation issues are growing. It’s the same for the new technologies developed by industry. This theme will certainly enhance the skills and the gumption future Quebec engineers.

"This event is a cornerstone in the development of our future engineers. It allows students to represent their schools and themselves in an exceptional way. Students will leave here with memories that will last a lifetime."

− Robin A. L. Drew, PhD, FCAE, ing. Former Dean and Professor, Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science, Concordia University

"Nous nous réjouissons de la fraternité qu’un tel événement développe entre les participants. C’est aussi pour eux l’occasion de mettre en application les connaissances acquises dans le cadre de leurs études et de nouer des liens avec les entreprises qui soutiendront ces activités. "

− Christophe Guy, ing., Ph. D., MACG, Directeur général, École Polytechnique de Montréal

"En plus de démontrer leurs compétences techniques, les étudiants doivent être en mesure d’être créatifs, de travailler en équipe et de communiquer efficacement."

"Cette compétition provinciale majeure réunit treize universités québécoises et environ deux cents des meilleurs étudiants du Québec qui viennent mettre en pratique leurs connaissances, leur créativité, leurs aptitudes en communication et leur leadership. "

− Kodjo Agbossou, ing.Ph.D., MS.IEEE, Directeur, École d'ingénierie, UQTR

"La CQI permet également aux étudiants de nouer des liens avec des personnes de différents milieux, tant du secteur académique que du marché du travail."
