Undergraduate Studies: EngSci Aerospace Major

What is the EngSci Aerospace Major?

Students who wish to study Aerospace Science and Engineering at the University of Toronto, must enroll in the four-year undergraduate Engineering Science program. In the first two years, this program places strong emphasis on mathematics, chemistry, physics and computing.

Towards the end of the second year of Engineering Science, students select a major (formerly known as an 'Option') for their 3rd and 4th years of study. Aerospace Engineering is one of those majors available for students to choose, and courses are primarily taught by UTIAS professors.

Program Description

The first two years of the Engineering Science curriculum are common to all majors. The full curriculum details can be found in the Applied Science and Engineering calendar.

In 3rd and 4th year, students who choose the Aerospace Major (Option), follow the curriculum described in the tables below.

Also Please Note:

  1. Students must take a half-year thesis in 4F or 4S, or take a full-year thesis.
  2. Students must take at least two of AER503H1AER506H1AER510H1ROB521H1 or AER525H1.
  3. The Technical Elective may be chosen from any 400 or 500 level technical course offered in Engineering provided students have taken the pre-requisite course(s). Other non-Engineering courses may be taken with the approval of the Division of Engineering Science.
