Europe’s first advanced master’s program dedicated to the operation and applications of drones will start on Jan. 8, 2018. The program’s full title is Unmanned Aircraft Systems Services and Management. All courses are taught entirely in English.
This advanced master’s is intended for French and international graduates with five years of higher education or 4 years of higher education plus 3 years of work experience. An admissions jury will examine the applications and select students for the program.
Responding to the needs of the civil drone market
The advanced master’s in unmanned aircraft systems services, accredited by the Conférence des Grandes Ecoles, was designed to meet a growing demand from corporate users (estimated at more than 3,000 businesses in France), OEMs, and the civil aviation authorities.
The new program at ENAC — the National School of Civil Aviation in Toulouse, France — was developed in partnership with industry leaders in the field of civil drones, with input from major industrial groups, SMEs, start-ups, trade organizations, research institutes, and aviation authorities — including SNCF, Safran, Airbus, Thales, Bouygues, RTE, Eurogiciel, Delair Tech, Pixiel, Airborne Concept SAS, Star Engineering, the Fédération Professionnelle du Drone Civil, ONERA, and DGAC.
The program fully aligns with market requirements.
Applications are open until Dec. 15, 2017.
