Course Details

Objectives: To propose to holders of a DUT or BTS in Mechanics/production or of L2 Sciences and Technology a complementary training including general knowledge in aeronautics and space fields, as well as full control concerning most specically used tools in this field: computer-aided design, digital control of machine tools, advanced composite materials, laser's use ( bonding, , trimming, surface treatment).
The training also includes much of management, communication and firm education methods.

Intended for: DUt or BTS mechanics/production or L2 Sciences and technology holders students.

Degree Level (EU) : 6 - (EQC level or equivalent)

Prerequisites: Technological knowledges, mechanical and industrial product conceiving.

Admission requirements: On view of files:
- BTS Mechanics speciality
- L2 Sciences and technology

Duration and terms: 1 year, 450h of courses and 37 weeks in a company or internship of 12 weeks minimum from the end of March.

Notes: The aeronautical Licence allows young mechanics students a specialization which makes them become quickly efficient.
As they have got a global vision of aircrafts structure and of aeronef specificities, they are ready to be integrated into big european groups in aeronautics and space area, or into equipment and engine manufacturers, or at general or sportive aircraft builders.
