Aerospace Engineering (MEng)

Master of Engineering (MEng)

The Master of Aerospace Engineering is a course-based program that emphasizes hands-on, multi-disciplinary training in the field. Students take part in project-based learning, graduating as well-qualified engineers with promising career opportunities. They train with aerospace industry partners on customer-focused research projects, supervised by experienced engineers and university faculty members. Our internships provide a balanced, global outlook that enhances graduates' value in the job market. The program is offered in collaboration with other Quebec universities and as many as 20 industry partners. The curriculum is designed to meet the evolving needs of the aerospace sector and is coordinated by two Quebec-based industry organizations: the Comité industries/universités sur la maîtrise en génie aéronautique et spatial (CIMGAS) and the Centre d'adaptation de la main-d'oeuvre aérospatiale au Québec (CAMAQ).
