Centre for Research in Sustainable Aviation (CRSA)

Housed in the University of Toronto’s Institute of Aerospace Studies, the Centre for Research in Sustainable Aviation combines traditional education with research projects and industrial partnerships. Such projects and partnerships produce a new generation of highly qualified engineers and innovative solutions addressing the environmental impacts of aviation.

Designing modern aircraft is a tightly integrated process requiring interdisciplinary interaction between aerospace practitioners: aerodynamicists, structural designers, propulsion experts, and control specialists. The CRSA addresses the need for scientists and engineers with the skills to develop future generations of environmentally sustainable aircraft. Its NSERC CREATE program boasts interdisciplinary technical training and collaborative opportunities with leaders in academia and industry, professional development opportunities, and four-month internships with the largest employers for aeronautical engineers and researchers in Canada.
