The Advanced Master in Aeronautical and Space Structures aims to grow expertise in numerical calculation of advanced structures and in the interferences of materials on the environment



In an increasingly competitive international context, the research on innovative materials combined with optimization of calculation
methods for structures, and their statistical, dynamic and thermal certification are major assets for industrial architects in the
aeronautical and spacecraft sectors.

WHAT? Prepares engineers with a future career:
             • in design,
             • research and Development,
             • certification,
             • testing and qualification.

HOW? • growing expertise in numerical calculation for the most advanced structures,
            • growing knowledge in materials,
            • understanding of their interactions with the environment (in particular loads and fluid-structure interactions).

The dynamics of flexible structures, modeling and active and passivestructural control of complex elements are the core focus of this
master program.
The goal of the AES Advanced Master program is to train specialists in the field of design, optimization and certification of light structures who have mastered methods of modeling and analysis of aircraft structures and space vehicles in an industrial context.


Conditions d'admission

The applicants must hold the following degrees:

  • Master’s Degree or an equivalent degree in science
  • Or a Bachelor’s Degree with at least 3 years of professional experience
  • International degree equivalent to the aforementioned degrees.

For candidates who do not meet these conditions but can justify 5 years of significant professional experience, these programs can be accessed via the Validation of Professional and Personal Acquisitions - VAPP 


It should finally be noted that contemporary structures as they are treated in this training - i.e. in connection with the latest research
advances - constitute a major contribution to the environmental performance of systems
