Master Advanced Manufacturing Processes for Aeronautical Structures (AMPAS)

Ecole Des Mines D’Albi-Carmaux | EMAC
Campus Full time 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.

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

ENAC
Campus Full time 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. [+]

Top Master's Programs in Aviation in Europe 2017. 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... [-]

MSc in Aviation Security

Emirates Aviation University
Campus Part time 18  September 2017 United Arab Emirates Dubai

The Masters in Aviation Safety and Aviation Security MASAS programme is designed for students who wish to further their knowledge and experience of aviation safety or aviation security or both together. [+]

MSc in Aviation Security The Masters in Aviation Safety and Aviation Security MASAS programme is designed for students who wish to further their knowledge and experience of aviation safety or aviation security or both together. The areas of Aviation Safety or Aviation Security are closely related and the MSc Aviation Security / MSc Aviation Safety programmes contain five modules that are core to both and deal with common issues such as risk management, human factors, strategy, operations and planning. Fundamentally, however, safety relates to measures that are taken against the threat of an accident, while security refers to protection from threats motivated by hostility or malice. Each programme therefore contains three specialist modules that enable students to consider in depth the different areas of regulations and compliance, design, use of technologies and systems that are associated with these different perspectives. Further specialisation is achieved through the Project which is required to focus on a topic that is aligned with the specialist area. By completing five core and three specialised modules, plus a subject area Project, students may obtain an MSc in either Aviation Safety or Aviation Security. If they wish to obtain a second MSc in the alternate specialisation on top of the first award, learners may complete the three additional specialised modules plus a second Project in the other subject area. Why enrol on this programme? The MASAS programme is one of very few degree programmes in the world to address those needs. The awards provide graduates with knowledge... [-]
