“UTIAS is a world class aerospace department … without doubt the top aerospace department in Canada.”   UTIAS External Review

The academic program in aerospace science and engineering at the University of Toronto includes undergraduate and graduate studies. Our undergraduate program is offered through the Engineering Science Program. At the graduate level we offer research-intensive programs leading to MASc and PhD degrees, and a professionally-oriented program leading to the MEng degree. The scope of our research includes aeronautical engineering (aircraft flight systems, propulsion, aerodynamics, computational fluid dynamics, and structural mechanics) and space systems engineering (spacecraft dynamics and control, space robotics and mechatronics, and microsatellite technology).
