    Graduation of the sixth promotion

     

  • PROGRAM

    The MASI program comprise 90 ECTS credits including an industry-oriented Master´s Final Project.

     

    Its modular presentation allows for part-time study with a flexible completion date taking between 1.5 and 3 years.

    The MASI Program combines three basic elements.

    • Fundamentals (M1), to provide the basis, the support to understand the technologies, the methods, the requirement.
    • Generalization (M2), required to manage complexity and to understand the whole (systems thinking), and
    • Experimentation (M3), to move from abstraction to implementation, innovation, invention.

     

    M1. Introductory Level (16.6 ECTS credits).

    Courses in the Introductory Level provide the technical knowledge necessary to understand how the different aircraft’s systems work.

    • Introduction to Aircraft Systems Integration (2.4 ECTS)
      Course Director: Daniel Izquierdo Gil (AIRBUS)
    • Fundamentals of Aeronautical Engineering (6.0 ECTS)
      Course Director: Marcos Vera Coello (UC3M)

    • Introduction to Aircraft Control (2.0 ECTS)
      Course Director: Concepción Monje (UC3M)



    M2. Core Level (15.6 ECTS credits).

    The Core level is aimed at providing the global systemic vision required to manage the large and complex aeronautic projects. The focus is on the procedures, methodologies, tools and agents common in all systems integration projects. It includes general courses like Systems Engineering or Project Management, and others more specific for the aeronautical context, but transversal in the integration processes.

    • Systems Engineering (3.2 ECTS).
      Course Director: Fernando Mijares Gordún (AIRBUS)
    • Airborne Software and Hardware (3.0 ECTS)
      Course Director: Ismael Lafoz Pastor (AIRBUS)

    M4. Practical Work (24 ECTS credits).

    This module is designed to provide the students with the technical, professional and social skills needed to enter and/or develop an engineering career in the (aeronautical) systems engineering-related industry.

    Group Design Project (4 ECTS)
    This module provides an introduction to intensive group project work in collaboration with an industrial or academic customer. The objective of the Group Design Project is to encourage both innovation and engagement with the broader engineering context (financial, economic, social, environmental). The use of ‘real world’ engineering problems requires students to actively engage with their customers to determine the scope and requirements of their project, in order to provide a realistic simulation of the sort of challenges that they are likely to face as engineering graduates.

    Internship Placement (20 ECTS)
    The MASI program offers full-time paid internship opportunities at leader aerospace companies. During the internship period (min. 720 hour), the students will solve real integration problems under the supervision of a Company Mentor. In addition to the real-work experience, the internship period helps MASI students to create a network of contacts very useful for finding permanent employment in the aerospace industry.

    Coordinators: Francisco J. González (UC3M) and Daniel Izquierdo Gil (Airbus Group)


    M5. Final Project (12 ECTS credits).

    The Final Project consists of the development of a complete system's integration project under the supervision of an industry or academic advisor. The project will make use of methods and tools learned in the MASI curriculum. The Final Project culminates in a written project report and an oral presentation.

    Coordinators: Daniel Izquierdo Gil (AIRBUS) and Francisco J. González Serrano (UC3M)

      Sponsorship and company support

       

      Working Professionals.

      Most students on the programme are self-financing, but about 50% are sponsored by their employers. Many companies recognise the benefits of an employee attending the MASI programme. One example is the Master’s Final Project, for which many MASI students carry out research and analysis into a particular area of interest to their sponsoring company.

      Another important factor to obtain the employer's full support is the reduction in social security contributions (Royal Decree 395/2007 on Professional Employment training), and the credit provided by some public institutions (namely Fundación Tripartita in Spain) for granting workers individual leaves of absence for training. More information can be found by contacting the Human Resources Department of your company or in Tripartite Foundation.
