Light Years Ahead.
Do you follow every NASA mission, from concept to touchdown?
Does the prospect of humans reaching Mars excite you? Have you attempted to build a working scale replica of the USS Enterprise in Minecraft?
If so, you’ve come to the right place. Space engineering encompasses all aspects of design, construction and operation of space vehicles. From maintaining payload orbit to ensuring proper communication, a space engineer is integral in the success of every mission.
This line of work requires a background in a range of different areas — orbital mechanics, computers and software, electrical power systems, wireless communications, structural design, rocket science…All of which you can learn about in Lassonde’s renowned Space Engineering program.
What You’ll Learn
Our accredited Space Engineering program — the only of its kind in Canada — teaches students about the design, manufacturing, integration and management of space hardware & data systems.
Lassonde students will also have the opportunity to receive hands-on training in the leading space technologies, including tracking spacecraft at the Algonquin Radio Observatory.
Beyond the technical expertise you’ll develop, the Space Engineering program will also help you acquire important business skills including writing, public speaking, management and leadership.
