The Advanced Manufacturing Processes for Aeronautical Structures programme of ISAE-SUPAERO Institut Supérieur de l'Aéronautique et de l'Espace is designed to develop technical knowledge of materials science and processes related to supply chain and organization.
The advanced master “Advanced Manufacturing Processes for Aeronautical Structures” leads to positions in subcontracting companies (aircraft manufacturers, aeronautical maintenance companies) as process, industrialization, production, quality, research and innovation engineering, product, project and production manager.
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. Estimations indicate that the annual increase of large commercial airplanes will induce a doubling of the number of aircrafts 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.
The Advanced Master course AMPAS, is designed by IMT 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.
The Advanced Manufacturing Processes for Aeronautical Structures Master course offers challenging career opportunities for young engineers or more experienced engineers, who require a postgraduate program to enhance and/or focus their technical and management skills towards aeronautical industry sector.
Career opportunities are numerous and growing over the world, in tier 1 and tier 2 subcontracting companies, as well as in aircraft manufacturers, aeronautical maintenance companies. Graduated AMPAS students can find employments as process, industrialization, production, quality, research and innovation engineer, product, project and production manager …
