Aerospace Engineering - BEng

Is it for you?

Aerospace engineers research, design and manufacture high-speed transportation vehicles, such as aircraft, spacecraft, drones, rockets, space stations, high-speed cars and hovercraft. They also design and develop the vehicles’ subsystems such as propulsion, avionic instrumentation and landing systems. 

Through our Aircraft, Avionics and Spacecraft streams, you’ll receive training from world-renowned faculty and use advanced facilities including wind tunnels, propulsion labs and structural testing facilities. You can also gain practical experience through a paid co-op program, in addition to project opportunities with industry leaders and government agencies like Bombardier, Pratt & Whitney Canada, the Canadian Space Agency, Safran and more.

 Accreditations:

  • The Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board.
