The Institute for Aerospace Studies may accept candidates for the MEng degree under the general regulations of the School of Graduate Studies.
Candidates for the MEng degree shall hold the degree of Bachelor of Applied Science from University of Toronto or an equivalent degree from a four-year engineering undergraduate program.
Under the guidance of the graduate coordinator, a candidate selects a program of study that consists of ten courses. Individual programs will be arranged to make up for background deficiency. Students who are pursuing the ELITE emphasis may take one additional course. At least half of the courses must be offered at UTIAS with course code AER or ROB, and at least seven must be technical in nature. As of Fall 2017, the only non-technical course offered at UTIAS is AER 1601.
The program may be pursued on a Full-Time (one year over three terms), Extended Full-Time (two years, up to six courses per year over three terms) or Part-Time (three years and maximum six years, up to four courses per year over three terms) basis. The tuition fees for the three options are approximately the same, distributed over one, two or three years as appropriate. It is recommended that students select the Extended Full-Time option; this is the default option.
