    Master AeroMat-Innovation, in partnership with Airbus under the “Airbus Global University partner program”, trains young leaders who want to build a strong career in the aerospace industry including scientific, technological and managerial competencies. As a student of this Master, you will acquire skills and expert knowledge on mechanical engineering, materials science and innovation management and will become a high-level engineer capable to adapt your skills to the aerospace market.

    By joining the Master AeroMat-Innovation, you will have the opportunity to enter two prestigious institutions members of the Institut Mines-Télécom (IMT):

    • IMT Mines Albi, in the UNESCO world heritage city of Albi near Toulouse (the European capital of aeronautics and space), for the 1st and 3rd semesters, to study aerospace engineering subjects
    • Institut Mines-Télécom Business School (IMT BS) in Evry near Paris, for the 2nd semester, to study innovation management subjects

    The Master AeroMat-Innovation has strong interactions with industry, e.g. classes taught by professionals coming from international reference companies and universities in the aerospace sector (Airbus, Safran, Cranfield University, ISAE Supaero), company visits, one-semester internship in the industrial or advanced research world. This will allow you to develop your professional network starting from the very beginning of the program.
