Master Advanced Manufacturing Processes for Aeronautical Structures (AMPAS)

IMT Mines Albi
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. [+]

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.

Special Masters Degree in Aerospace Engineering

Sapienza University of Rome
Campus Full time 2 years October 2017 Italy Rome

The Special Degree in Aerospace Engineering (Code LM-28400) aims to develop experts that can be employed in advanced research and aerospace development centres. Students experience a system-oriented approach to aerospace engineering [+]

The Special Degree in Aerospace Engineering (Code LM-28400) aims to develop experts that can be employed in advanced research and aerospace development centres. Students experience a system-oriented approach to aerospace engineering that is not common in the industry as the complexity of each subsystem drives engineers to focus on single aspects. The Special Master of Aerospace Engineering is a two-year programme designed for students holding an Italian masters degree (Laurea Magistrale) in any engineering discipline, earned after 5 years of studies, or an equivalent degree earned abroad. However, it may be reduced to one year for students with an Aerospace Engineering degree obtained at the end of 5 years of university-level study programmes. Learning Objectives The learning objective of the Special Master of Aerospace Engineering is training experts that can be employed in advanced research and development centers in aerospace engineering. An important aspect of the program consists in giving students a system-oriented approach to aerospace engineering. The capability of having a system-oriented and global vision of a space mission is not common in the industry because complexity of each subsystem pushes engineers to focus on single aspects. The design of the general architecture is assigned to the system engineer who is a long-experienced engineer that is able to have a global understanding of the project due to their experience acquired in various subsystems. System engineers are increasingly more difficult to find due to discontinuities that occur over time in the development of large space projects. Master programs in aerospace... [-]

The joint Master's programme in Turbomachinery Aeromechanical University Training (THRUST) is a cooperation between KTH, Duke University, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and Université de Liège. The programme offers education of high international standard as well as cultural experience from at least two different countries and a double degree from two universities. Energy and propulsion are much needed systems in the world for most modern human activities and social development for a sustainable society. Turbomachines produce more than 90% of all electricity in the world, drive the majority of aircrafts and are used extensively as compressors, pumps, etc. in many modern applications (e.g. refrigerators, ventilators, etc). Programme outline The programme is highly integrated, first of all regarding student and teacher mobility for certain common lectures, but also related to the extended use of remote teaching by the specialist teachers at all four universities, in conjunction with “face-to-face” and “virtual” interactive workshops and project courses. The educational programme THRUST offers a unique, modern and highly interactive learning material which enhances the student learning process. This, together with the “remote learning” aspects, will also allow for a substantial potential for already active industrial persons to participate in the programme as part of the life-long learning inside their respective companies. Given the nature of the subject of aeromechanics, multidisciplinary skills are fostered. Career prospects The THRUST programme offers the students a worldwide unique education at a high academic level, involving researchers/teachers at three European and one US top universities in the area and prepares...
