    The Advanced master program - Mastère Spécialisé® AMPAS is a 1-year program designed by IMT Mines Albi and ISAE-SUPAERO with the support of aerospace industry partners certified by the “Conférence des Grandes Écoles” (CGE). It trains master level students or young professionals who want to specialize in manufacturing processes for aeronautical or space structures and get more chances to make a brilliant career in the aerospace industry.

    As a student of this advanced master, you will acquire skills and expert knowledge on materials science and process for aircraft or space, metallic and composite structures forming and machining processes, supply chain structure and lean management.

    By joining the Advanced master program - Mastère Spécialisé® AMPAS, you will have the opportunity to enter two prestigious institutions:

    • IMT Mines Albi, one of the best engineering school in France, located in the UNESCO world heritage city of Albi, for 70% of the classes
    • ISAE-SUPAERO, the world leader in aerospace engineering higher education, located in the city of Toulouse, the European capital of aeronautics and space, for 30% of the classes
