Program Summary

The Faculty of Engineering and Design’s Aerospace Engineering program in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering emphasizes the development of analytical, computational, and hands-on engineering and design skills related to the aerospace field.

The Aerospace Engineering program is fully accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board, allowing graduates to meet the educational requirements for registering as a professional engineer.

The broad range of topics and applications included in this discipline are covered in four main specialty streams:

Aerodynamics (aerospace propulsion and atmospheric flight)

Aerospace Structures (lightweight vehicles for flight and space travel)

Aerospace Electronics and Systems (aircraft control, communication and navigation systems)

Space Systems Design (astronautics and space/satellite technology)

All four streams emphasize the development of practical and problem-solving skills based on hands-on laboratory and design work.
