As an aerospace engineer, your career options are as vast as the universe. If transportation is your passion, you’ll graduate with the knowledge you need to design the latest vehicles to carry us across water, land, sky or space. You’ll decide how fast we’ll travel, how safe and cost-effective transit can become, and just how far the limits can be pushed. You can also apply your skills outside of the field in careers such as teaching, business and renewable energy.

In the Department of Aerospace Engineering, our students receive training from renowned, award-winning professors and have access to opportunities with the Canadian Space Agency, Bombardier, Transport Canada and more. Our undergraduates join student competition teams that are taking Hyperloop and NASA by storm, and gain invaluable work experience through our optional co-operative internship program. Our graduate students work on innovative research that accelerates their careers and advances technology.

Alumni Spotlight

"The programs at Ryerson are beyond the academic, and place you in a real world mindset. It's not only the fundamental principles, which you of course learn, but how to actually implement them in the current and future business environment that makes Ryerson special. The professors and students alike have an open view of the world and want you to take this learning out of the classroom to make a truly positive impact on society. My education at Ryerson made me believe that I have the tools to jump into the global driver-seat and make things happen anywhere."
