MedTech is a university and community driven by a shared purpose: to develop the minds of young engineers. All nationalities and all disciplines are welcome to try to expand their minds and understanding in the fields of Software Engineering, Computer Systems Engineering, Renewable energies, Artificial Intelligence, and Blockchain applications.
At MedTech our philosophy of higher education is driven by a three-fold strategy serving one central mission of placing students in the center of all learning and teaching activities.
The first element of MedTech policy is to provide students with a personal exploratory learning environment. Our course offering and training is driven by student-centered learning environment, in which students can contribute to the content of teaching, the learning process and learning objectives themselves. A key element of MedTech curriculum is the focus on problem-based and project-based learning. All students are trained in taking responsibility for their learning and the teachers, supervisors and the educational environment are all resources in this process.
Le programme BAA 2+2 MSB – HEC Montréal est une formation d’élite qui s’inscrit dans le cadre de la politique d’excellence de la MSB et de la recherche de partenaires de renommée internationale. La diversité des cultures est un enrichissement aussi bien pour nos étudiants que pour l’équipe MSB. Nous sommes fiers de compter HEC Montréal parmi nos partenaires et souhaitons développer d’autres formes de collaboration avec cette institution pour faciliter à nos étudiants l’accès à des expériences à l’international.
I belong to the first cohort of MedTech. I am extremely grateful for giving me unique opportunity to build a diversified and powerful network and gain technical engineering skills. I believe that by integrating courses with MSB, I also developed entrepreneurial and creative thinking. I am very appreciative of having completed my capstone project in University in Coimbra and now continuing my education in Sustainable Energy Systems PhD program at University of Porto with the hope of becoming first ambassador of MedTech in Portugal. I look forward to growing my career path in research and actively contributing to the wonderful community of MedTech.
Medtech is one of my best life experiences. During my software engineering curriculum, I not only gathered a strong technical skills background but also learned various soft skills including problem-solving, public speaking, technical English communication, and project management. I’ve met amazing people and learned a lot from high-level professors that participated in my career growth.
Now I am a Software engineer, a data scientist at Think-it (A-Tech Tuniso-german company based in Tunis that works with international companies), and I can say that my three years of engineering at MedTech have a huge impact on what I achieved until now. I am also a teaching assistant at Medtech, I manage a team at Think-it and worked on different projects in machine learning, Natural Language Processing, and Computer vision fields. I am proud of who I became and grateful for what I learned from Medtech. I encourage anyone who would like to join the university and take advantage of this great learning opportunity.
Being an ambassador to Highered and working closely with the Career Center was a very good experience for me. This last period has been difficult for everyone given the current situation in the world but that did not prevent us from working. As an ambassador of Highered SMU and more precisely Medtech, I had a pleasure to work during all this month with the platform representative Stefano. Our first challenge was to welcome a maximum of students from our university within the platform. All this continued during this period of confinement. Our last challenge which is still in progress is that of having a maximum of online internships and a virtual Career Fair. For this, the ambassadors of Highered SMU are working with the DSC (Developer Student Club of SMU) but also with the Highered Platform. This experience has been very enriching for me and I hope to continue serving this cause.
My name is Dana Al Darras a software engineering student in Medtech. When I first applied to the university we were told about the job fair, an annual event where we get to meet and connect with various companies on our own campus. The concept was mindblowing but I as a first-year student it was a bit intimidating as we had no experience in building a personal brand, a CV, a LinkedIn portfolio or any of the requirements that make a student a considerable candidate for internships and jobs in those companies. However, the week of the job fair, the university's career center offered us an extensive series of workshops and lectures that helped me build a strong business persona that qualified me as an eligible candidate for an internship I applied for. Thanks to the two job fairs i have attended on the course of the past two years, I've completed two internships, had over three job offers, and gained a strong network of connections that came in handy when I launched my own startup this year.
