Has the institution adopted one or more sustainability learning outcomes that apply to the entire student body or, at minimum, to the institution's predominant student body?:
Yes

Which of the following best describes the sustainability learning outcomes?:
Sustainability-focused

A list of the institution level sustainability learning outcomes:
As an engineering school, all undergraduate programs must be certified by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board, as must all engineering schools in Canada. In this accreditation, there are 12 requirements that undergraduate students must meet in order to practice the profession.
One of these requirements states that all undergraduate programs must have a sustainable development learning objective. It is in Article 3.1.9., «An ability to analyze social and environmental aspects of engineering activities. Such ability includes an understanding of the interactions that engineering has with the economic, social, health, safety, legal, and cultural aspects of society, the uncertainties in the prediction of such interactions; and the concepts of sustainable design and development and environmental stewardship. »
Also, there are two attributes linked to sustainability abilities, such as Article 3.1.4 (Design) and Article 3.1.10 (ethics and equity) mention. These articles respectively states: «An ability to design solutions for complex, open-ended engineering problems and to design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate attention to health and safety risks, applicable standards, and economic, environmental, cultural and societal considerations» and «An ability to apply professional ethics, accountability, and equity.»

Total number of graduates from degree programs:
1,829

Number of graduates from degree programs that require an understanding of the concept of sustainability:
1,608

A brief description of how the figure above was determined:
As for undergraduate programs, all of them present sustainable learning outcomes as stated previously. ÉTS has been accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board and has taken the necessary steps to ensure that all its programs meet the requirements.

One of the "Graduate Qualifications" that concerns the predominant student body (undergraduate students from all bachelor's degrees) under the BCAPG Accreditation Standards and Procedures (Article 3.1.9) states:
"Impact of engineering on society and the environment :
Ability to analyze the social and environmental aspects of engineering-related activities, including an understanding of the interactions of engineering with the economic, social, health, safety, legal, and cultural aspects of society; the uncertainties of predicting such interactions; and the concepts of sustainable development and environmental stewardship." This information is available on ÉTS's institutional website, at https://www.etsmtl.ca/services/dd/initiatives-pour-un-campus-durable/enseignement-et-recherche.

For undergraduate short program and graduate programs, a manual analysis conducted by the sustainable development Team was made to identify programs that have sustainable development learning objectives. The attached document presents the programs including a sustainable learning outcome. The document stating the different sustainability learning outcomes is uploaded as "Documentation supporting the figure reported" of this credit.
