Comments about Master of Engineering in Aerospace - At the institution - Montreal - Québec

  • Objectives
    This program is specially designed for those students who wish to specialize in Aerospace Engineering and is offered in cooperation with other Quebec universities (École polytechnique, Ecole de technologie Superieure, Laval, McGill and Sherbrooke) and aerospace industries (Bombardier, Bell Helicopter, CAE Electronics, Canadian Marconi, Canadian Space Agency, Pratt & Whitney, Rolls Royce, EMS Technologies and others). It is coordinated by the Comité industries/universités sur la maîtrise en génie aéronautique et spatial (CIMGAS), which has representatives from all participating universities, aerospace industries of Quebec, and the Centre d'adaptation de la main-d'oeuvre aérospatiale au Québec (CAMAQ). The aerospace industry provides direct and indirect support to the program and closely collaborates in the training of the students.

  • Course description
    1.      General/Preparatory Core Courses. Normally, 12 credits are required to be completed from the list provided below. Any request for change on this requirement must be approved by the program director. Depending on the background, it may be required for the student to complete certain specified preparatory courses as part of their program.
    ENCS 6021, 6141; ENGR 6111, 6121, 6131, 6181, 6201, 6421, 6441, 6451, 6461, 6501; MECH 6481.

    2.     Specialization Courses. 24 credits are to be completed from the specialization courses in one or more of the areas listed below. For other courses available from the participating universities, consult their listings. Students should consult the program director at their home university for the selection of courses to suit their area of specialization and need not confine their choice to any one area. A minimum of two courses are to be taken outside of Concordia, at least one each from any two of the participating universities. A second Aerospace Case Study course may be considered as a specialization course.

        Aeronautics and Propulsion.
    ENGR 6251, 6261; MECH 6081, 6111, 6121, 6161, 6171, 6191, 6211, 6221, 6231, 6241.

    École Polytechnique: ELE6502 (Instrumentation automatisée en micro-ondes).
    McGill University: MECH 542 (Spacecraft Dynamics).

    3.     Aerospace Case Study. A minimum of three credits (up to a maximum of six credits) must be obtained from the Aerospace Case Study courses. These courses,  organized by CIMGAS, are conducted by experts from industry, and are given at one of the participating universities. The material given in a particular case study course might be offered only once. It is, therefore, the responsibility of the student to choose an appropriate course when it is offered. Space in some case study courses may be limited. These courses are:

    MECH 6961 Aerospace Case Study I

    MECH 6971 Aerospace Case Study II

    4.     Industrial "Stage". Students will be required to complete six credits (ENGR 7961) in the form of an industrial work-period ("stage") sponsored by the aerospace industry. This activity is an integral part of the program and is to be carried out under the supervision of a senior engineer in the facilities of the participating company. Students are eligible for the “stage” only after completion of at least one semester of studies. The topic is to be decided by agreement between the student, the participating company and the program director. The student's performance during this work period will be evaluated at regular intervals. The student's grade will be based on this evaluation.

    There may be some restrictions placed on students chosen for the industry sponsored "stage". For those students who are unable to obtain an industrial stage, it is possible to take a project carried out at the university. Such students must obtain the approval of the program director. Industrial "stage" courses are:
