Pierre Dumouchel, Director General of ÉTS

With a current complement of 24 research chairs and 27 research groups, ÉTS set itself the objective of reaching 40 research chairs by 2024. This objective is part of an ambitious program to make ÉTS a world-calibre engineering school.

And everything indicates the school is on the right track: its post-doctoral to doctoral student ratio is among the best in Canada, its professors receive average funding higher than the average for Canadian universities and ÉTS ranks 7th among Canadian universities displaying strong growth in research funds.
