At the Department of Aerospace Engineering, our highest priority is educating tomorrow’s leaders in aerospace engineering. We have a team of engaging faculty members renowned in their fields dedicated to providing you with the educational experience you need to build and advance your career in aerospace. Graduates of our BEng, PMDip, MEng, MASc and PhD degree programs go on to become leaders throughout the industry and academia.

Our department is always striving to be at the forefront of aerospace technology. By growing our co-operative internship program, prioritizing software and design training, and strengthening our relationships with leading aerospace companies through RIADI, we’re evolving to meet the needs of our students and industry. Recently, in addition to upgrading many of our labs, we’ve added a number of research facilities in the Ryerson Aerospace Engineering Centre that will further solidify our reputation as a leader in aerospace education, research and training.

I encourage you to discover all that our department has to offer.

“Students choose Ryerson because we help them realize their full potential.”
