Why this programme?

The primary objective of aeronautical and aerospace engineering is to ensure all aspects of air safety, which covers all the areas involved: equipment, systems, aircraft and aerospace vehicles, as well as training centres, maintenance organisations and the certification of continued airworthiness.

The professional sector includes all civil and military aviation activities and as a result, all EASA Part 145 aircraft maintenance centres and systems, EASA Part 147 training centres, Design Organization Approval (DOA), Continuing Airworthiness Management Organisations (CAMO), technical departments in air transport companies, and service stations for repairs and modifications to aircraft.

The programme is designed according to the emerging professional profiles and categories in the sector, meeting the needs of a highly dynamic sector and providing access to employment for technicians specialising in the design, operation and maintenance of aircraft.

This Master's Degree in Air Safety and Aircraft Maintenance is the only one in Spain to offer full training and the necessary certificates which with professional experience in the civilian and/or military aircraft field lead to obtaining the Aircraft Maintenance License (LMA). It also includes EASA courses on subjects that complement the advanced specialist training for aeronautical engineers, aerospace engineers and aeronautical technical engineers on aircraft maintenance.

The inclusion of advanced subjects in this programme that are not included in the syllabus for degree courses means that graduates can work in the regulated professions of Aeronautical Engineer and Aeronautical Technical Engineer respectively, and professional internships in aeronautical companies provide students with thorough and advanced knowledge that means they can immediately find employment in real working environment.

Our co-operation with the most important companies in the aeronautical sector also means that we can guarantee that our training is appropriate to meet the needs of a sector in which these companies have a high international profile, and provides the opportunity for internships during the course.

The majority of our teaching staff are working professionals with recognised prestige working in the leading companies in the sector.

Promoted by:
- Identify the knowledge that provides a basis or opportunity to be original in developing and/or applying ideas.

- Acquire the knowledge defined and the ability to solve issues in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to the field of study.

- Integrate knowledge to deal with the complexity of formulating judgments based on information that is incomplete or limited, and includes considerations of social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments.

- Acquire learning skills to enable continued study in a largely autonomous manner.

Who is it for?

The master's degree is mainly aimed at students with the following profile at the beginning of the course:

- Graduates in Aerospace Engineering.
- Graduates in Industrial Engineering.
- Aeronautical Technical Engineers.
- Industrial Technical Engineers.
- Aeronautical Engineers.

And professional profiles with a non-aeronautical university degree, such as:

- Graduates in Telecommunications Engineering, Telecommunications Engineers, Telecommunications Technical Engineers.
- Industrial Engineers, holders of Master's Degrees in Industrial Engineering.
- Industrial Technical Engineer in Mechanics, Graduates in Mechanical Engineering.
- Naval Engineers. Naval Technical Engineers, Graduates in Naval Engineering.

Learning methodology

The teaching methodology of the programme facilitates the student's learning and the achievement of the necessary competences.

Learning tools
Participatory lectures
A presentation of the conceptual foundations of the content to be taught, promoting interaction with the students to guide them in their learning of the different contents and the development of the established competences.
Solving exercises
Solutions are worked on by practising routines, applying formulas and algorithms, and procedures are followed for transforming the available information and interpreting the results.
Students are given technical support in the preparation of the final project, according to their specialisation and the subject matter of the project.
Assessment criteria
At least 80% attendance of teaching hours is required.
Solving exercises, questionnaires or exams
Individual tests aimed at assessing the degree of learning and the acquisition of competences.
Completion and presentation of the final project
Individual or group projects in which the contents taught in the programme are applied. The project can be based on real cases and include the identification of a problem, the design of the solution, its implementation or a business plan. The project will be presented and defended in public.
Work placements & employment service
Students can access job offers in their field of specialisation on the My_Tech_Space virtual campus. Applications made from this site will be treated confidentially. Hundreds of offers of the UPC School of Professional & Executive Development employment service appear annually. The offers range from formal contracts to work placement agreements.
Virtual campus
The students on this master's degree will have access to the My_Tech_Space virtual campus, an effective work and communication platform for students, lecturers and course directors and coordinators. My_Tech_Space allows students to find background material for their classes, to work in teams, ask their lecturers questions, consult their marks, etc.
