Requirements

The Emphasis in Aerial Robotics is sponsored by the Centre for Aerial Robotics Research and Education (CARRE) The program will enhance the graduate student experience with a view to further develop their expertise in the burgeoning field of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). This emphasis focuses on integrated research and development on aerial robotics systems, from design, instrumentation, to autonomy. All interested students are encouraged to register with the CARRE Program Coordinator via the Registration link below.

Students who successfully complete the requirements of the Emphasis will be provided a certificate of completion at the end of their studies. The certificate may be claimed by contacting the CARRE Program Coordinator at coordinator@carre.utoronto.ca.

PhD & MASc

PhD, MASc students must complete:

  • AER1216 (Fundamentals of UAVs) and AER1217 (Development of Autonomous UAS)

  • One other course from the approved list which will be updated on a regular basis or other related courses approved by professors

  • One MASc/PhD thesis relevant to UAV

MEng

MEng students must complete:

  • AER1216 (Fundamentals of UAVs) and AER1217 (Development of Autonomous UAS)

  • One other course from the approved list or other related courses approved by professors

  • One MEng project course related to UAV

Registration

The Emphasis in Aerial Robotics is not tracked through the regular ACORN (previously ROSI) process. The CARRE Program Coordinator will confirm the completion of the Emphasis. Please complete the following survey to register.
