Introducing Integrated Logistics Support concepts, definitions and tools, the MS AMS syllabus offers a comprehensive teaching program with 2 options: structure, avionics.


The global and booming aviation market is characterized by low volumes, highly complex products with long lifecycles and high values, governed by restrictive regulatory requirements, with constant safety concerns and with a huge growth in the aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul business (MRO). MRO plays a key role for defence and aviation industry encompassing a wide range of complex activities: engine overhaul, heavy checks, line maintenance, component maintenance, and major airframe modifications. Through regular maintenance, MRO ensures the continued airworthiness and operational safety of aircraft, and therefore the safety of passengers. Beyond, it ensures aircrafts meet the rigorous certification, safety, or standards set by international authorities such as ICAO, EASA and FAA.
Today, the aviation industry is facing tremendous challenges. To compete, aviation companies in all segments must strengthen their ability to increase productivity and production rates with products and services that meet customer demands, with a focus on continuous critical assessment of cost and performance. So, the continued support for MRO is an intrinsic part of aeronautical and maintenance manager, including service lifecycle management, service organizations, configuration management, reducing costs and improving service quality.
The objectives of the Master in Aeronautical Maintenance and Support are to provide students with up-to-date exposure to modern techniques and methods, know-how, regulations and standards applied in aviation industry, putting the emphasis on life cycle cost management making services more profitable, available and reliable.
The master MS AMS aims at providing a wide range of knowledge from engineering basics to management of maintenance organisation in the respect of international regulations within Integrated Logistics Support methods. Merging academic teachings, up-to-date ILS and Maintenance concepts delivered by experts from industry and authorities, it prepares attendees to face, successfully, the competitive and fast changing MRO worldwide business.
With the Master in Aeronautical Maintenance and Support, ISAE has made a significant improvement to answer to the current needs of manufacturers, design offices and customers support departments, airlines, MRO and authorities. MS AMS is the only one in Europe which addresses both Maintenance and Integrated Logistics Support for civil and military aviation business in an integrated program.
First semester: academic session of courses from September to March.
More than 500 h of lectures, tutorials, practical sessions, CAD, visits of industries (Airbus Group, Sabena Technics, Liebherr Aerospace, Air France, DGA, etc.).

Second semester: students have to conduct a professional thesis in aerospace industry or in laboratory, in France or abroad, supervised by a tutor from the host organization and a professor from ISAE. The thesis is concluded by the preparation of a report and an oral dissertation in front of jury.

It is intended to students who envisage management position in aircraft manufacturers, airlines, and MRO organisations on civil market or military forces.
