About Us

The ECS Montreal Student Chapter was founded in September 2010 to promote communication and collaboration between electrochemistry and material science students from Montreal and the surrounding areas.

The ECS Montreal Student Symposium is a yearly event that attracts over  a hundred students, professors, researchers and industrial scientists.
