Royal Military College of Canada

The Royal Military College of Canada abbreviated as RMC, is the military college of the Canadian Armed Forces, is a degree-granting university training military officers. RMC was established in 1876 and is the only federal institution in Canada with degree-granting powers; the Royal Military College of Canada Degrees Act, 1959 empowers the college to confer degrees in arts and engineering. Programs are offered at the undergraduate and graduate levels, both on campus as well as through the college's distance learning programme via the Division of Continuing Studies. Located on Point Frederick, a 41-hectare peninsula in Kingston, the college is a mix of historic buildings and more modern academic and dormitory facilities. Officer cadets of the Royal Military College of Canada are trained in what are known as the "four pillars" of academics, officership and bilingualism; the Royal Military College of Canada prepares officer cadets for a career in the profession of arms and continues the development of other Canadian Armed Forces members and civilians with an interest in defence issues.

RMC provides programs and courses of higher education and professional development to meet the needs of the Canadian Armed Forces and the Department of National Defence. RMC is responsible to: Provide a university education in both official languages in appropriate disciplines designed on a broad base to meet the unique needs of the Canadian Armed Forces Develop qualities of leadership in officer cadets Develop the ability to communicate in both official languages for officer cadets Develop a high standard of physical fitness Stimulate an awareness of the ethic of the military profession Conduct research activities in support of RMC and to meet the needs of Defence Research Agencies The RMC priorities are: To build high quality, world-class programs in areas of importance to the Canadian Armed Forces and to Canada To promote national and international collaborations and partnerships To promote interdisciplinary co-operation; the RMC mission is to educate and develop Officer Cadets for leadership careers of effective service in the Canadian Armed Forces – the Royal Canadian Air Force, the Royal Canadian Navy and the Canadian Army.

For most students under the ROTP, education is free and a monthly salary is paid which meets incidentals. The courses are offered both on site and by distance learning in both official languages: English and French. After graduation, Officers are to give two months of service for each subsidized month of education. RMC offers 19 undergraduate programs in Arts and Engineering. RMC offers 34 graduate studies opportunities, including 14 doctorates. In addition to the Faculty of Arts and Science, the Division of Continuing Studies offers undergraduate and graduate level programs including the "Officer Professional Military Education" program; the Department of Applied Military Science offers a graduate level program – the Land Force Technical Staff Programme and an undergraduate/community college level program – the Army Technical Warrant Officer's Programme. All undergraduate students are required to complete the core curriculum, designed to provide a balanced liberal arts and military education.

The Core Curriculum consists of Economics, Mathematics, Calculus, Military history of Canada, Canadian History and Civics. Tuition fees at the undergraduate level vary from $2,780 – $3,710 for Canadian undergraduate students and $2,780 – $3,165 for Canadian Graduate students; the tuition fees for international students vary from $8,750 – $9,000 for undergraduate students and $6,200 – $6,700 for graduate students. The lower tuition amounts are for the arts and sciences programs, while the higher amounts are for the engineering programs; because of commitments of military service following graduation, education is free for most on-campus undergraduates. Funding has been put in place to support civilian students, who are eligible for admission to the master's and doctoral programs to work alongside graduate students who are members of the Canadian Armed Forces; the research at RMCC focusses on areas of direct and indirect benefit to the Department of National Defence. RMC conducts both academic and contracted research on electrical and computer engineering, chemistry, chemical engineering and environmental engineering, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, international security and the economics of defence.

Both members of the Canadian Forces and civilian students are eligible for admission to the master's and doctoral programs. The undergraduate student body, known as the Cadet Wing, is sub-divided into 13 squadrons of 70 college cadets each; each squadron is subdivided into three flights, with each flight further subdivided into three sections. The squadrons are led by senior cadets under the guidance of the squadron commander. Note: The dates given are for the current organization of the wing and does not include former squadrons or the same squadrons under different names. For example, 1 Squadron was the first squadron at RMC, meaning 1 squadron has existed since the College's founding in 1876, but has only been known as Hudson Squadron since 1948. In 2007, a former squadron of the Royal Military College Saint-Jean, Jolliet Squadron, was stood up at RMC as 13 Squadron. The
