ÉTS trains future engineers who will be able to become project managers in any domain. “A project manager is like an orchestra conductor on a work site: he brings the stakeholders together and moves them forward. It takes someone who has the leadership, the technical knowledge and the rigour. These are qualities that I find among co-op students from ÉTS, where they make sure to train them to succeed in the job market”, explains Pascal Michaud.
