A master’s degree is a unit of study that typically takes one to two years to obtain. Students are able to build on skills, knowledge and experience in their chosen areas of study to advance careers and compete for higher paying jobs.
What is a Master in Aeronautical Engineering? The goal of these programs is to build on essential conceptual, research and analytical skills for problem solving and working with peers in engineering fields. Course studies may include aerospace navigation and technology, satellite design, advanced computational methods, aeronautical propulsion and basic engineering tasks. Students may wish to combine a program with additional tracks in related subjects or continue on to pursue a PhD program.
Completing a program in aeronautical engineering can offer many benefits and open the door to a wide variety of potential career opportunities. Efficient communication, proper application of theoretical skills and exposure to global engineering environments can all help prepare students to compete for more rewarding positions in their field.
The cost of taking a program may vary depending upon school location and selected courses. Students interested in a program should contact its institution with questions about costs and additional requirements.
Achieving a degree in aeronautical engineering can help students secure a wide variety of fulfilling positions. Potential aeronautical and aerospace opportunities include consulting engineers, systems engineers, manufacturing engineers, industrial engineers, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, computer hardware engineers, architectural managers, airline operators and teachers. Many engineers find jobs within relevant industries such as the federal government, military, aerospace product manufacturers, colleges and universities, research organizations and consulting agencies.
Continuing education can understandably be a challenge to balance at times. Courses are offered internationally with full-time and part-time options to accommodate all kinds of students.

Reduction in the weight of aircraft, reduction in polluting emissions, increase in aircraft capacity, development and integration of electrical commands: innovation is constant in the aeronautical sector, to reconcile economic and technical performance, in complete security. Being an engineer in aeronautics means working on the design and operation of aircraft (aeroplanes, helicopters, balloons), and embedded systems. [+]
The modern air transport industry needs engineers who have more than the traditional technical skills. The airlines need to ensure global security at an affordable cost. Their Engineers need a global view of the legal and economic environment as well as an in-depth understanding of operation and maintenance processes in order to cope with growing international competition and a complex regulatory framework.

Master in Aircraft Systems Integration
The Master of Engineering in Aircraft Systems Integration (MASI), sponsored by Airbus Group-Spain, has been specifically designed for recent graduate engineers, and working professionals who want to develop and lead projects of Systems Integration. Our courses are given in English by internationally recognized experts in their fields coming from the key players in the aeronautical business, including industry, academia, government and regulators. The MASI program comprise 90 ECTS credits. The full-time program includes 12 months of instruction at AIRBUS GROUP and UC3M, followed by a Final Project to be completed within 6 months. Its modular presentation allows for part-time study with a flexible completion date taking between 1.5 and 3 years. The MASI Program combines three basic elements. Fundamentals (M1), to provide the basis, the support to understand the technologies, the methods, the requirement. Generalization (M2), required to manage complexity and to understand the whole (systems thinking), and Experimentation (M3), to move from abstraction to implementation, innovation, invention. M1. Introductory Level (16.6 ECTS credits). Courses in the Introductory Level provide the technical knowledge necessary to understand how the different aircraft’s systems work.
