Aerospace Studies: Aerospace Science and Engineering: MEng

Master of Engineering​

Program Description

The Master of Engineering (MEng) is a course-based program designed to lead to employment 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.

The MEng program can be taken on a full-time, extended full-time, or part-time basis. 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.

 

Full-Time Option

Minimum Admission Requirements

  • Applicants are admitted under the General Regulations of the School of Graduate Studies. Applicants must also satisfy UTIAS's additional admission requirements stated below.

  • An appropriate bachelor of applied science degree in engineering, or an equivalent four-year degree from a recognized undergraduate engineering program.

Program Requirements

  • Coursework. Completion of 5.0 full-course equivalents (FCEs) (10 half courses) as follows:

    • A minimum of seven half courses (3.5 FCEs) must be technical.

    • A minimum of half the courses must be offered at UTIAS.

    • A maximum of three 500-level courses (1.5 FCEs) is permitted.

    • Students must achieve at least a B- average to be in good academic standing. Failure in any course taken for credit may result in termination of the student's registration.

    • Students deemed to have insufficient background may be required to complete supplementary coursework in addition to the required 5.0 FCEs. A maximum of 5.5 FCEs may be taken; permission must be granted by the graduate office to exceed 5.0 FCEs.

    • Students must complete all the required courses within three sessions (one year).

  • Once students are registered, transfer between the full-time, extended full-time, or part-time option is not permitted.

  • Students have the option of completing an emphasis in Advanced Manufacturing; Aerial Robotics; Engineering and Globalization​; Entrepreneurship, Leadership, Innovation and Technology in Engineering (ELITE)​; Robotics and Mechatronics; Sustainable Av​iation; or Sustainable Energy as part of their degree program. Please see details in the Aerospace Science and Engineering MASc, MEng, PhD Emphases section.
