The Faculty of Aerospace Engineering offers a Master of Science (MSc) degree as a research-oriented graduate degree. The MSc degree will prepare and guide students towards careers in academia, industry, and government.  It includes a broad curriculum of courses spanning all disciplines within Aerospace engineering, and culminates with a research-oriented thesis.



Two Degree Options

Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering

This degree option is intended for students that studied aerospace engineering as an undergraduate. Students without an aerospace degree can still choose this degree by completing additional courses (details below).

Master of Science

This degree is intended for students without an aerospace engineering undergraduate degree.

Three Completion Tracks

The MSc and MSc in AE degrees have 3 different degree tracks.

The research track aims to train students in basic research methodologies. This includes conducting research within a defined scope and presenting your findings in final thesis. The research can be theoretical or experimental, focusing on fundamental or applied aspects of Aerospace engineering.
The comprehensive engineering project track aims to train students in engineering design methods. Compared to the research track, this track emphasizes the practical engineering approach to problem solving. The project will be an extensive engineering project devoted to engineering design, theoretical or critical engineering analysis, lab or field experimentation.
The final paper track aims to synthesize the student’s acquired knowledge by applying theoretical concepts to address practical problems. Compared to the research or final project track, this track is narrower in scope and can be theoretical, computational, or experimental.
Admission Requirements

All MSc and MSc AE applicants must hold an undergraduate degree from an accredited university. Students holding a degree from a 3 year program will be required to take up to an additional 20.5 credits of coursework, determined by the aerospace graduate studies committee.

Applicants applying for the MSc AE degree without an undergraduate degree in aerospace engineering may also be required to complete an additional 20 credits of coursework, determined by the aerospace graduate studies committee.

All interested applicants must complete and submit the Technion application form (LINK)

Our faculty has the following additional admission requirements:

  • A minimum GPA of 83 (based only on technical courses).
  • A reference letter.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact potential advisors for their MSc studies. Faculty advisors who agree to supervise must submit a letter of interest.

International Students

International students may be requested to take the GRE exam.  Interested applicants should contact the Aerospace graduate studies office (email here) for further details.

It is also expected that international applicants are in contact with a potential advisor that agrees to supervise their studies.  The advisor must submit a letter of interest as part of the application.

Completion Requirements

Completion of the MSc or MSc in AE degrees includes both coursework and research.  Program details can be found on the Technion graduate school website.

Admitted students that are required to take additional coursework as determined by the Aerospace graduate studies committee can find a list of potential courses here.

A summary of the degree requirements for each of the study tracks is provided below.

Final Paper
Coursework 22 credits 22 credits 30 credits
Research 20 credits 20 credits 12 credits

All MSc students are required to hold a seminar presenting their final results.

Degree Duration

Students receiving scholarships (internal) are expected to complete the MSc degree within 4 semesters.

Students not receiving scholarships (external) are expected to complete the MSc degree within 8 semesters.
