Génie+, a recognition of student engagement

Are you actively involved in student life at ÉTS? Do you take part in activities within a club, the student association, or a student group or project recognized by ÉTS? Have your involvement officially recognized by obtaining a Génie+ designation.

The Advantages of the Génie+ Designation

Your involvement in student life makes you an asset to ÉTS and the people around you. That’s why we give official designations to students who take an active role in the development of ÉTS.

By having your student involvement officially recognized, you will receive:

  • An official designation on your transcript;
  • An asset for your scholarship applications;
  • A asset in your engineering training that you can add to your résumé;
  • A badge as a symbol of your involvement;
  • After three designations, a scroll from the Director General’s office;
  • The satisfaction of being recognized by ÉTS.
