Stitched panorama of Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières.

The Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières draws on its history and setting for inspiration. Its Centre for Quebec Studies, for example, is an homage to a city that traces its roots back to 1634. But trying new things is also part of the university’s ethic. In 2004, it launched a podiatry program to complement its midwifery, chiropractic and nursing programs. Programs in forensic chemistry, recreation, culture and tourism are the first of their kinds in Quebec, and a new campus in nearby Drummondville opened in 2016. Students have the opportunity to complement their degrees with certificates and nine- to 12-credit microprograms offered entirely online. Notable research units include the Hydrogen Research Institute, a leader in the development of sustainable energy systems, and the laboratory ship Lampsilis, which conducts research on aquatic ecosystems along the St. Lawrence River. Researchers at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies on the Development of the Child and the Family are experts in areas such as child abuse and domestic violence, while the Research Institute for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises has received global recognition.
