History

The school was established in 1950 as a religious owned school called Externat classique de Longueuil.[7] In 1967, several institutions were merged and became public ones, when the Quebec system of public colleges was created, including the Cégep Édouard-Montpetit, named after the Quebec lawyer and academic, Édouard Montpetit[8]

Sports

The Cégep Édouard-Montpetit's 16 athletic teams are known as the Lynx.

Programs

The CEGEP offers two types of programs: pre-university and technical. The pre-university programs, which take two years to complete, cover the subject matter which roughly corresponds to the additional year of high school given elsewhere in Canada in preparation for a chosen field in university. The technical programs, which take three years to complete, applies to students who wish to pursue a skill trade. In addition, Continuing Education for adults and services to businesses are provided.

The CEGEP is ranked among the top 10 in research[9] and is located in an impoverished neighborhood of Longueuil.[10]

École nationale d'aérotechnique

L'École nationale d'aérotechnique (ÉNA) is a campus of Cégep Édouard-Montpetit located in the vicinity of Saint-Hubert Airport in Saint-Hubert. It is located in close proximity to numerous aeronautical enterprises.

The institution is the largest aerotechnical college in North America and the only institution in Quebec to offer comprehensive training[11] in avionics, Aerospace Engineering and aircraft maintenance (including an aircraft maintenance program offered in English[12]). It has a fleet of 37 aircraft including two Learjets and two Bombardier Challenger. The school has also received a Bombardier CS100 donated by the company.[13]

Montreal Metro expansion

In late 2008, the former mayor of Longueuil, Claude Gladu had planned for a Montreal Metro extension to Cégep Édouard-Montpetit on the Yellow Line.[14] In 2013, the project is still on the rail in a far future.[15]
