The APM advanced Master provides students with an overview on military or civil international Aerospace industry and gives up-to-date skills, cutting-edge knowledge, and necessary competences for successfully leading Project


complex, innovative with high added value. Placed at the heart of political, economic, environmental and technological issues, in France, in Europe and worldwide, it requires a prospective vision from decision makers. It is based on specific industrial processes, characterized by long, costly and risky cycles (R & D, production, maintenance & support). In this context, project management in aerospace environment requires mastering a wide scope of knowledge, know-how and expertise adapted to the specific needs and issues of this challenging worldwide business.

To answer to these concerns, ISAE, Ecole de l'Air and ENAC gather their expertises to develop the Aerospace Project Management (APM) advanced master. The professionally-oriented APM advanced Master provides
students with an overview on military or civil international Aerospace industry and gives up-to-date skills, cutting-edge knowledge, and necessary competences for successfully leading Project or Program teams in global aerospace and defence industry. With an emphasis on operations, the program is designed to
those beginning their career in management of projects or to professionals aiming at enhancing their competences for a fast career evolution. The program of the APM is taught, by experts or lecturers with extensive aerospace project experience, with a combination of formal presentations, in-class exercises, or study cases.

The objectives of this practical approach are to provide students with current techniques and tools in project management taking into account industrials, economical or legal specificities of the Aerospace business.

The comprehensive training program is organised into four teaching parts:
First part: Overall overview of aerospace industry (60 hours).
The first part provides the students with an in-depth overview of word-wide aeronautics and space industries enabling them to have an overall understanding of technologies, products, innovation and strategy stakes in the global civil and defence market.
Second part: methodology (200 hours).
This part leads to a good understanding of Project management tools (WBS, planning, needs specification, etc). Models and Methods of Project management for Aerospace context with specificities for high stakes and long cycle programs.
Third part: economic and financial aspects (120 hours)
This part leads to a good understanding of economical stakes for nations or industries and the role of politics. How to evaluate the cost of a long term program, the investment return hope, but also how to manage cost during development or manufacturing phase.

Fourth part: knowledge management in multicultural team project (60 hours).
This part underlines the necessity to integrate and federate competences around a common objective; how to motivate people for a long term project.
How to integrate intercultural management within international Program to avoid conflicts and change resistance. In each of these parts the risks evaluation and control will be systematically underscored as well as Quality concepts and indicators dedicated to Aerospace context.
Professional thesis
During semester 2, students have to conduct a professional thesis in aerospace industry or in laboratory, in France or abroad, supervised by a tutor from the host organisation and from ISAE or Ecole de l'Air. The thesis is concluded by the preparation of a report and an oral dissertation in front of jury.

APM advanced master program leads students to integrate or to become Head of Aerospace program team. To conceive and pilot complex projects with permanent care of costs and risks control in Aerospace companies or in defense institutions.
