  • The economic success of actors in the aerospace industry strongly depends on the ability of companies to develop management strategies for research and development, technology transfer and optimization of the overall manufacturing process.


    This is a strategic issue in the highly competitive sector of the production of materials and structures for aerospace applications. Technologically, tomorrow’s engineers will develop multiphysics and multi-scale approaches adapted to generate innovation where it will emerge, at the crossroads of scientific disciplines.

    In terms of management, they will be able to deploy methodologies and implement complex and global organizational processes integrating a multi-cultural dimension to anticipate and accompany the changes due to an ambitious industrial innovation policy.
