Aeronautical sciences and techniques are part of the field of mechanics in the broad sense. However, there are strong thematic specificities and it is useful to train personnel capable of working in an aeronautical environment.

  • How are the studies organized?
    • The courses take place at the Air Force Academy of Salon for the military and at POLYAERO Hautes-Alpes for the civilians. The teaching team comes from the University of Aix-Marseille, the Air Force Academy of Salon de Provence and professionals from the aeronautical industry.
    • The courses are divided into 7 modules over a period of 3 months, for a total of 273 hours.
    • The teaching methods are diversified: theoretical courses, tutorials, concrete case studies. This diversity must be brought to each seminar and implies the active participation of the students. The control of knowledge is continuous.
    • Language of instruction: English / French
