Aerospace Graduate

As part of our graduate program in Aerospace Engineering, you’ll gain the specialized skills you need to not only solve problems here on earth but to also actualize design concepts for travel beyond. You’ll conduct innovative, internationally recognized research, and work closely with Canada’s leading aerospace companies. You’ll also challenge yourself to invent in our world-class labs and research facilities, completing our program with the critical thinking, teamwork and advanced technical skills this competitive industry demands. 

You can choose from one of three specializations: Aerodynamics and Propulsion; Aerospace Structures and Aerospace Manufacturing; Avionics and Aerospace Systems. But there are no limits. You can have an impact in any area you’re passionate about—from the automotive sector, to renewable energy, to teaching.
