The Montreal Aerospace Institutes (MAI) is an organization that brings together the aerospace industry and six Quebec universities. It was created to address the aerospace industry’s present and future needs for engineering Highly Qualified Personnel (HQP). Each university is represented in the MAI by an Institute, through which students may participate in projects offered by participating companies.

Through MAI’s activities, students become familiar with the many fascinating challenges that aerospace engineering has to offer and develop their interest in aerospace as a career path.

The best engineering undergraduate and graduate students in each university are selected by the Institutes on the basis of their marks (CGPA), but also of their leadership, team spirit, and management skills as well as their interest in aerospace, demonstrated by their participation in aerospace-related activities offered by the Institutes.

The MAI offers students:
– Challenging projects with a potential Research and Innovation content, executed in industry, that familiarize them with the aerospace environment and challenges.
– Courses on aerospace-engineering related topics.
– Other educational activities such as industrial visits and international projects.
