Course

The air transport system is an inherently multidisciplinary field, where technical and organizational skills are needed to face both normal operation and developmental programs.

Today, commercial aviation is experiencing a significant growth at a global level. All major players in the system, including airlines, handling and airport management companies, as well as regulators and supervisory agencies, will need to cope with this trend, relying on highly skilled professionals with an excellent technical qualification in aeronautics and a deep knowledge of the processes typical to the air transport system, from the global picture to the innermost components.

The Master course is supported by the Italian Civil Aviation Authority (ENAC).

Training objectives

The air transport system is an inherently multidisciplinary field, where technical and managing skills are needed to face both normaland emergencial operations.

It has experienced a significant growth in recent years. Covid-19pandemic strongly impacted the situation, anyway the air transport system has demonstrated resilience in many fields, and recovering is in sight. The future will not be a replication of the past. New ways shall be followed.

All major players in the system, including airlines, handling and airport management companies, as well as regulators and supervisory agencies, will need to cope with this trend, relying on highly skilled professionals with an excellent technical qualification in aeronautics and a deep knowledge of the processes typical to the air transport system, from the global picture to the inner most components.

The Master Course will allow the participants to develop a complete knowledge of the air transport system in its multiple aspects, by means of a structured theoretical approach well suited for engineers, followed by a practical internship period of a minimum of 4 months in a qualified organization, with the tuition of experienced industry staff.

At the end of the Course, the participants will have gained a good familiarity with the field of the air transport, which will constitute a primary asset for a successful job application in the field, easing their transition from the academic world to the job market.
