The MS ANSEO integrates the topics of the former masters by offering a systematic and global approach of the Air Navigation systems: on-ground (communication systems, navigation systems, surveillance systems, automated air traffic control systems), on-board (Satellite and avionics systems), and its operational methods (Air Traffic Management). [+]

As part of the policy on continuous improvement and adaptation of its master program to meet technological evolutions, air transport jobs, and to better answer to the needs of the global Air Navigation Industry, ENAC created a new Advanced Master Air Navigation System Engineering and Operations which replaces 3 former advanced masters: MS aviation and Air Traffic Management, MS Air Ground Collaborative System Engineering and MS Communication Navigation Surveillance. The MS ANSEO integrates the topics of the former masters by offering a systematic and global approach of the Air Navigation systems: on-ground (communication systems, navigation systems, surveillance systems, automated air traffic control systems), on-board (Satellite and avionics systems), and its operational methods (Air Traffic Management). Aims of the MS ANSEO: Commercial air transport Business should double before 20 years according to the most realistic forecasts. Therefore ICAO, States, Authorities of the Civil aviation should anticipate and prepare technically and operationally this growth by, establishing and implementing an effective global air navigation services system, absorbing the air traffic growth by a more integrated flight management into their different phases, reducing waiting times on the ground or during flight, and implementing new optimized operational concepts for eco-effective trajectories. Training program objectives The new advanced master “Air Navigation Systems Engineering and Operations ", MS ANSEO, is based on a systemic approach of Ai Navigation System, on an unique and integrated program with opened to three operational options: ATM, CNS/GNSS and Avionics. The MS ANSEO role is to educate a new generation of Air Navigation Systems experts providing up-do-date skills and transverse knowledge to develop and operate the Air Navigation System meeting the worldwide Air Transport challenges. Future graduates of the MS ANSEO will be qualified managers of interdisciplinary teams to develop or to improve technical Air Navigation System, whether at sub-systems level (plane, ground, management of air traffic) or at architecture system integrating interactions between these sub-systems. Thanks to their high techniques monitoring, legal and regulations awareness of the global Air Navigation System, they will be able to monitor, to optimize systems evolution, whether it is at the equipment level or at the system level, or to propose operational and technical road maps, and to define the development and operational standards. So, whether it is for senior or for junior engineers in their first years of their professional life, the MS ANSEO will give them the best means, after their graduation, the understanding of the complexity of technical Air Navigation systems, to allow them to develop adapted solutions, to make the decisions and to take the most relevant technical and operational choice meeting their particular needs satisfying of the worldwide overall objectives. The option "ATM" prepares future engineers for developing and improving operational efficiency of air navigation systems and air traffic management operations by a thorough knowledge of interactions between various actors of the air transport. The option “Avionics” prepares future engineers for designing, developing, integrating or the testing, as well as for the certification or maintenance of any avionics systems, thanks to their comprehensive mastering of legal, regulatory, technically and operational associated aspects. The option "CNS/gnss" prepares future engineers for developing technical infrastructure, implementing advanced systems ensuring air navigation services, such as communication, navigation (including GNSS) and surveillance, and in particularly the navigation systems by satellite, thanks to their comprehensive mastering of legal, regulatory, technically and operational associated aspects.

Advanced Master in Safety Management System in Aviation - MS SMS-A

Campus Full time 1 year October 2017 France Toulouse

The ENAC Advanced Master Safety Management System in Aviation is designed for current or future SMS managers in charge of the development, deployment, or improvement of SMS in organisations that must comply with ICAO safety requirements. [+]

Content and Objectives ENAC Advanced Master SMS in Aviation is designed to train SMS managers who will lead the structural and administrative changes within their organisation, moving it from reactive thinking to predictive thinking. In an effort to reach the next level of aviation safety, international civil aviation authorities (ICAO, EASA, FAA) as well as IATA require organisations and institutions alike to implement a Safety Management System (SMS) for the management of safety risks. The corresponding fields include: aircrafts design and production, air operations, aeronautical maintenance, air traffic services, airport and training organisations. SMS represents the next step in the evolution of safety processes in the aviation industry worldwide, at the organisational level. SMS complements the requirements and regulations in human or technical safety already implemented during the past decades. SMS is the formal systemic and pro-active approach to anticipating and managing safety risk, as well as to initiating and achieving the necessary transformation of organisational structures, accountabilities, policies, procedures, standard practices and regulations. SMS is a structured process that requires organisations to apprehend possible safety issues with the same level of priority that other core business topics are managed, and to continuously analyze them, in conjunction with state institutions within their State Safety Program (SSP), as well as with their industry counterparts. The objective is to provide future SMS managers with the fundamentals of how to systematically monitor and improve aviation safety using the Safety Management System described in ANNEX 19 of the ICAO Convention. This program enables applicants to acquire a practical expertise in the development, implementation, assessment and improvement of SMS and SSP. Courses cover all of the aspects of SMS concepts, processes, methods and operational management, either cross-domain or specific to the organisation. The program is specifically engineered to address both executive as well as working levels, to consider the entire gamut of aviation organisations (aircraft operator, manufacturer, maintenance organisation, airport operator, air navigation service provider, training organisation) and to cover the interactions between all of these organisations. At soft skills level, the program emphasises the necessity of enhancing or improving the organisation safety culture - the just culture, through a transformation of leadership, management and employees attitudes. It will give to trainees the capacity to develop, implement and grow all of the above mentioned aspects of a SMS in any aviation organisation they work in. Furthermore, they will be able to make critical assessments of professional safety management practices and systematically deal with complex problems. Professional Prospect The ENAC Advanced Master Safety Management System in Aviation is designed for current or future SMS managers in charge of the development, deployment, or improvement of SMS in organisations that must comply with ICAO safety requirements. Career opportunities Civil Aviation Authorities: Safety Director or Manager Safety performance Manager SSP (State Safety Program) Manager Responsible for certification and approval Industry and operators (Aircraft operator, Aircraft Manufacturer, MRO Organisation, Airport operator, Air Navigation Service Provider, Training Organisation): Safety Director or Manager SMS (Safety Management System) Manager Safety investigations Manager Safety analysis Manager [-]
