NCADE’s apprenticeship program is open to engineering undergraduate students of any discipline.
Apply in the first year of your engineering program and spend your summers working with an industry organization. Once selected, you will prepare for your first summer experience with an intensive 8-week crash-course on aircraft fundamentals at the École Nationale d’Aérotechnique (ÉNA).
8-week bootcamp at l’ENA (hands-on training)*
Each subsequent summer
During your terms studying on campus you will work with Dr. Marsden to complete your course work and prepare for your next apprenticeship.
You may also be interested in the Introduction to Flight and Aerospace Systems (AERO 201) with labs taking place at l’ÉNA or the BEng in Aerospace Engineering.
Students in any undergraduate engineering program can complete their Capstone design project. Multi-disciplinarity is stronglyencouraged in the aerospace sector, and we encourage students from mechanical, electrical, software engineering and computer science to take this opportunity.
Students form a multi-disciplinary team of up to 30 students, reflecting the large teams students will encounter in the aerospace workforce. Working with Dr. Marsden, these teams develop a design for a full-sized aircraft with all systems on board.
Your aerospace design team will recieve a Request for Proposal document, just like those prepared by industry. Project milestones and deliverables occur throughout the year and include weekly design review presentations, mid-year and final design reports, and mid-year and final presentations.
If you are considering a career in aerospace and want to be prepared, this is the capstone for you!
Students do not need to be aerospace students to enroll in the aerospace capstone project (AERO 490).
