Educational Integration

Education is an integral part of QAM's vision. Schools and universities will be regularly invited to actively participate in student projects that enhance student education and the development of the museum. This includes aerospace-related institutions such as the École des métiers de l’aérospatiale de Montréal (ÉMAM), the École nationale d’aérotechnique (ÉNA) and the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS), as well as other educational institutions offering related training, such as Collège Montmorency which has a well- regarded museology program.

The first student project saw two teams of mechanical engineering students at ÉTS design a jig to support QAM's Avro CF-100 to facilitate structural repairs and reinstallation of the landing gear on this rare jet fighter. This first initiative perfectly illustrates the vision of integrating the educational community into MAQ projects.
