Campus Full time 1 year September 2017 France Albi

The Advanced Master course AMPAS, is designed by Mines Albi and ISAE with the support of aeronautical industry partners. [+]

Best Masters in Manufacturing in France 2017. Master Advanced Manufacturing Processes for Aeronautical Structures (AMPAS) A booming industry After a short recession period, the Aeronautical industry market is facing a rapid and continuous increase worldwide as shown by the record breaking contracts recently signed by both Airbus and Boeing. These two industry leaders forecast an increase of close to 5% in activity over the next years and estimations indicate that the annual increase of large commercial airplanes will induce a doubling of the number of aircraft by 2030. Nearly sixty percent of the turnover is subcontracted all over the world and concerns mostly production and manufacturing activities. As a consequence most aeronautical subcontracting companies will have to increase their production rates but also to keep up to date with technological changes; moving from metallic processes toward composite materials processes. Moreover the aircraft manufacturers have changed their supply chain structure in the last years, and subcontractors are now required to manage more complex parts and to take over, on their own, the qualification processes. At the heart of Europes Aerospace Valley The Midi-Pyrénées is home to the global headquarters of Airbus and over 600 subcontracting businesses, employing more than 60,000 employees. The French space agency (CNES), as well as Thales and EADS Astrium are also present in the area along with their lot of subcontractors. The Ecole des Mines d’Albi and Institut Supérieur de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace (ISAE), have both a proven track record of leading research and working alongside industrial partners in the aeronautics industry. This master program is accredited by the French “Conference des Grandes Ecoles” A formation tailored to the need of the industry The Advanced Master course AMPAS, is designed by Mines Albi and ISAE with the support of aeronautical industry partners. It will give a specialization to master level students allowing them to take over high level responsibilities in airframe structure manufacturing plants. It is especially well suited to students who have followed general studies in mechanical engineering, material science or equivalent and who would like to gain a major chance to be recruited by aeronautical industry. To reach this goal, AMPAS master students will develop: general knowledge of flight dynamics constrains and airframe design knowledge and understanding of the airframe materials and processes and their qualification constrains knowledge, understanding and practice of the prevalent processes for structural applications with either metallic or fiber reinforced thermoset composites materials ability to use state of the art simulation tools for definition and optimization of metallic sheet forming and RTM/infusion process knowledge of the aeronautical supply chain structure and their communication rules understanding of the aeronautic dedicated quality and management requirements knowledge and practice of lean manufacturing tools ability to undertake manufacturing projects in an international team environment ability to communicate with written reports and by oral presentation Lecturers Professoral staff form Ecole des Mines Albi and ISAE (Institut Supérieur de l'Aeronautique) and more generally from University of Toulouse Experts form Aeronautical Insdustry, especially from AIRBUS and supply chain Experts from certification, quality, supply chain organization and management Requirements Applicants must have a Master degree, or an equivalent degree in science or engineering, or a bachelor degree with 3 years of professional experience at least. English Language Requirements IELTS band: 6 TOEFL paper-based test score : 550 TOEFL iBT® test: 79 Contents A balance of theoretical learning and practical experience: The course consists of 75 credits mixing academic teaching and professional experience. First semester: academic term of 450h and 45 credits, provided by permanent professors of Mines Albi and ISAE and expert practitioners from aerospace industry to bring current knowledge and experience. The teaching, balancing academic lessons with more applied practice. Second semester: Professional thesis in the aeronautical industry or in an academic research lab in collaboration with aeronautical industrial partners, in France or abroad. The duration is from 5 to 6 months and corresponds to 30 credits. Students are supervised by a tutor from the host organization and from Mines Albi or ISAE. Thesis is concluded by the preparation of a final report and an oral dissertation in front of a jury. Syllabus The academic course consists of 450 hours of taught modules aiming to provide a deep knowledge of the three main material families used in airframe structures (i.e. aluminum, titanium and long fiber reinforced polymer composites) as well as their related forming routes relevant to aeronautical industries. It is also devoted to gain knowledge in aircraft architecture, on aeronautical supply chain specificities, lean manufacturing and quality management required to be able to take over technical and organizational responsibilities in industry. A team project (100 hours) will demonstrate the ability to address an aeronautical part processing problem following the theoretical and professional skills. In more details: 1. Aircraft, material and process basic scientific knowledge Aircraft General Knowledge Flight Dynamic Structure and Airframe Design Aeronautical materials and processes Aluminium and titanium alloys Epoxy and thermoplastic composites Assembly processes Material and processes qualification NDT and shape control techniques NDT for metallic and composite materials Optical techniques for assembly aid Computer Aided Design 2.

The Region Lyon is located in the south-east of France, on the confluence of the Rhône and the Saône Rivers. It stands on a geographical crossroads, to the North of the natural corridor of the Rhône valley (which stretches from Lyon to Marseille). With the Lyon-Saint Exupéry international airport and three TGV high-speed train stations, Lyon is connected to all major European cities and the world! Lyon is only 2 hours by TGV to Paris and 1hr40 to Marseille and the Mediterranean. If it's mountains you prefer, the Alps are a mere 90 minutes away by car, the Massif Central only 30 minutes away. Historically, Lyon is an industrial city and therefore houses many petrochemical industries along the Saône and Rhône Rivers, in the so-called ‘chemistry corridor’. Lyon is also the city with the second largest number of students in France, with three universities and many engineering schools. In terms of its population, it’s the 3rd biggest city in France, with over 470,000 inhabitants, and the second largest agglomeration after Paris (2 million inhabitants). [-]
