Aerospace at McGill takes a multi-disciplinary approach, with more than 40 faculty members drawn from disciplines in electrical and computer, civil, materials, and mechanical engineering, as well as law. They run research programs worth over $20 million in funding, supported by federal, provincial, international, and industrial programs. Key areas include:

  • Aero-acoustics  (Prof Luc Mongeau)

  • Aerodynamics and Fluid Mechanics  (Evgeny Timofeev, Rabi Baliga, Luca Cortelezzi, Tim Lee, Siva Nadarajah, and Laurent Mydlarski)

  • Aero-icing  (Fred Habashi)

  • Aerospace Coatings and Tribology (Richard Chromik)

  • Aerospace Materials and Alloy Development  (Stephen Yue, Mathieu Brochu, In-ho Jung, and Damiano Pasini)

  • Aircraft Dynamics and Control  (Meyer Nahon)
