The main objective of the " polytechnic " minors organized by the Faculté des Sciences Appliquées is for a student taking the engineering science baccalaureate, should s/he so wish, to acquire, via a major/minor polytechnic combination, basic training in two specialist areas of engineering science, and thus to broaden his/her range of technical skills, or to prepare for a master's in engineering science which spans the basic courses offered at baccalaureate level.
The disciplinary objectives of the minor in electricity are to help the student acquire the majority of the discipline's basic concepts and provide him/her with fundamental knowledge in its main areas of application, more precisely:
- Designing, analyzing, simulating and testing electrical circuits, putting standard components in place
- Understanding the foundations of electromagnetic theory and physical phenomena which are at the origin of how electronic devices work
- Mastering the basic concepts of electronics, telecommunications and electrodynamic converters
