Requirements

Students can earn an Emphasis in Aerial Robotics by completing the required courses. There are several requirements that must be satisfied to attain this recognition:

PhD & MASc

PhD, MASc students must complete:

  • AER1216 (Fundamentals of UAVs) and AER1217 (Design of UAVs)
  • 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 (Design of UAVs)
  • One other course from the approved list or other related courses approved by professors
  • One MEng project course related to UAV
