It is necessary to be in possession of a Bachelor Degree in Physics, Engineering or Mathematics. Nevertheless, and as an exception, the Academic Commission could study the curriculum of a student coming from another Degree and allow him/her to enroll in the Master.
For students who have not already completed their Bachelor studies, but they are close to finalizing them, the Academic Commission of the Master may authorize enrollment. However, once they finish the Master program, they may not apply for certification until they present official documentation certifying that they have completed the Bachelor degree. Meanwhile, the Secretariat of the Master shall issue a certificate stating its approval.
A B2 Level of English is recommended.
How to apply
In each edition of the Master a maximum of 30 students will be admitted, in order to ensure quality training, individual monitoring, and placement of each student in the partner companies providing traineeships.

The main goal of this period of 350h is to provide you with specialised training and to introduce you in the professional market. Indeed, all the promotions of the Master show that around 90% of our graduates are hired after the completion of the program in those companies were they carried out the practical learning, as well as the Master Project, which is directed by the company and usually focused on new developments or projects of common interest.
Each edition of the Master allows a maximum of 30 people in order to ensure the educational quality of the activities, practices and laboratories at the National Institute for Aerospace Technology (INTA). Also, this small number of people allows to ensure that all students have guaranteed their training, development and investigation activities in the companies in which the Master has an agreement of internship.
Upon pre-registration, the student must submit the documentation regarding his / her university education and curriculum vitae. Once it is analysed by the Academic Committee of the Master, the student has order of preference to carry out the enrolment. The student is continually updated about the process.
