Master of Engineering (MEng)

Students conducting an experiment with the water tunnel

The Master of Engineering (MEng) in Aerospace Science and Engineering offered at UTIAS is a program dedicated to engineers who wish to upgrade their qualifications with the goal of working in the aerospace industry. Students select from the wide range of UTIAS courses, as well as courses offered by other University of Toronto departments, to create a personalized curriculum. Students can also opt to follow one of several emphases, which provide more concentrated teaching in a specific area, and which are recorded on the student’s transcript.

UTIAS MEng students take courses in all the major aerospace disciplines, in the many other engineering and computer science fields offered at the University of Toronto, and in engineering management.

Each UTIAS MEng student can select their own customized set of courses from the wide selection offered at the University of Toronto. The course work is supplemented by a wealth of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.

In addition, UTIAS MEng students can take advantage of our strong international connections, particularly with Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China and ISAE-SUPAERO in France. UTIAS offers innovative exchange and joint study international opportunities with both partner institutions.

The MEng program is based on course work with no major research component but MEng students may elect to complete the AER1810H MEng project, supervised by a UTIAS professor. Students looking for a research-rich experience should investigate our MASc and PhD degrees.

The UTIAS MEng program is an ideal choice for hard-working, ambitious students aiming to succeed in the Canadian and global aerospace industries.

Length of study

UTIAS MEng students can choose one of three program options:

  • Full-time, where all course work is completed within one year;
  • Extended full-time, with two years to complete the course work;
  • Part-time study

Transfer between the full-time, extended full-time and part-time programs is not permitted after registration. The default registration is the extended full-time program.
