Program-Avionique-600x400.jpg In addition to its regular program of avionics techniques, ÉNA offers a DEC-BAC course in Avonique to facilitate the transition of graduates in avionics techniques to the bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from Polytechnique Montréal.

The school path

Students wishing to follow the DEC-BAC pathway must integrate, during their three-year DEC, five academic prerequisite courses required by Polytechnique. Of these courses, two are in surplus (including one in summer session) and three replace courses already scheduled in the schedule.

  • Differential Calculus (201-NYA-05)
  • Integral calculation (201-NYB-05)
  • Linear algebra and vector geometry (201-NYC-05)
  • General Chemistry: Matter (202-NYA-05)
  • Electricity and Magnetism (203-NYB-05)

Two of these courses are recognized as complementary courses. At the end of their three-year college program, students will benefit from privileged access to the BAC in electrical engineering if they meet the admission criteria for all bachelor's degrees at Polytechnique Montréal, ie the success of prerequisite courses and a rating. R meeting the minimum requirements of Polytechnique Montréal.

Graduates of the DEC-BAC DEC program will be recognized by Polytechnique Montréal with exemptions from university courses allowing them to reduce their study sessions. These exemptions represent six courses (equivalent to 17 credits) for students enrolled in the Bachelor of Electrical Engineering, Aerotechnology orientation; three courses (6 credits) for those opting for the Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering, Concentration Embedded Systems in Aerospace; and two courses (5 credits) for students choosing another orientation or concentration of this bachelor's degree.

The secondary prerequisites required for this DEC-BAC course in Avionics

  • Mathematics Technico-Sciences or Natural Sciences of Secondary V or equivalent
  • Secondary V Physics or equivalent
  • Secondary V Chemistry or equivalent


Interested students must register on the website of the Regional Admissions Service of Metropolitan Montreal (SRAM) by choosing the program 280.D0 Avionics Techniques and then selecting the particularity "DEC-BAC path in Avionics".

Your future

  • The employment prospects of our graduates are excellent, because the industry is currently experiencing a shortage of manpower.
  • Average annual salary ranging from $ 43,160 (CAN) to $ 68,280 (CAN)
  • Opportunity to pursue university studies in engineering
  • Thanks to an agreement reached with the Walloon Aeronautical Network (WAN) Skills Center of Belgium, ÉNA is able to offer its students the opportunity to take the EASA PART-66 theoretical exams in order to obtain the aircraft technician's license in accordance with the European EASA EASA Part-147 European Certfication Standards (EASA)
