Free 2018 International Student Handbook
Lassonde School of Engineering
Full-Time and Part-Time
New frontiers offer new challenges. Space Engineering tackles these challenges by combining unique technical skills to design solutions to Earth’s problems using space-based assets while utilizing the principles of systems engineering. These solutions require knowledge of all engineering disciplines, combined with the knowledge of unique space environments — both in orbit and on other planets. Career paths include: space engineer, robotics and automation engineer, remote-sensing specialist, systems engineer.
Our Space Engineering program is accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB).
What You’ll Learn
Lassonde’s Space Engineering program will equip you with the technical skills required to design solutions to Earth’s problems using space-based assets while utilizing the principles of systems engineering.
Delve into systems ranging from orbit control and space-based optics, to ground station communications and robotics. As a student, you will learn and practice the design and management of complex multidisciplinary projects that enable missions to the far reaches of the solar system.
The co-op program after second year, allows you to gain professional experience within space agencies and related fields that require the design of complex systems.
