ABOUT US

The Poly-Monde project aims to organize an industrial mission abroad that will allow 24 soon-to-be engineers to better understand the international issues relating to the current global industrial context. To begin, the team members assess the economic sectors that shall be studied through industrial visits in Canada during the academic year. Those visits enable the team to become familiar with the Canadian industrial context as well as its technology defining competitiveness. Learn more.

 

Sectors of Study

India represents a significant rising force on the international economic scene that must not be overlooked. The country has a large and increasingly qualified population that drives its economic growth. This rapid expansion leads to reflection; What are the socio-economic consequences of this rapid development on its habitants, small traders and large companies? What role does the Indian culture play in this expansion and what are the obstacles facing development? It is through the study of the three distinct economic sectors that Poly-World 2018 will try to identify the differences and establish parallels between India and Quebec.

Information and Communication Technologies

The global ICT sector is a very competitive and innovative market. In the last 20 years this industry has grown exponentially in India. The country now holds up to 60% of the world's market.

Food and Agriculture

Agriculture is the most important economic sector, in India. Alone, it employs 58% of rural households and accounts for 17% of the country's GDP.

Health Technologies

The indian pharmaceutical sector provides more than 20% of the world's generic drugs. As the demand for health care and India's population continue to grow, health care technologies will have to provide accessible diagnostic and treatment even in rural sectors.
