Frequently Asked Questions

The recommended profile for admission to the Master’s degree is to be in possession of a university degree in engineering, science or equivalent. However, the Academic Committee of the Master may consider other academic qualifications required for admission, prior student curriculum analysis.

For those students who have finished their undergraduate studies but does not have the diploma in engineering degree, bachelor of science or equivalent, the Academic Committee of the Master may authorize the student’s enrolment. Nevertheless, once they pass the Master may not apply for the diploma until they provide the official documentation certifying income qualifications.

48% of the academic activities are taught in-person at the Higher Technical School of Engineering of the University of Huelva (“El Carmen” Campus) in downtown Huelva (Spain) and within the CEDEA-CEUS Center of the National Institute for Aerospace Technology (INTA) in Mazagón, Huelva. The remaining 52% of the activities are carried out in the companies that share an agreement with the Master, which are leading companies in the RPAS/UAS sector at global scale.

The Master has a duration of 900 hours spread over approximately 14 months (mid-October to mid-December of the following year) and is carried out in 2 courses. The first course, which develops the academic activities at the University of Huelva and the National Institute of Aerospace Technology (INTA), begins in September and ends in June of the following year. From then until December of the same year, the second course is developed, where students will conduct their stay in companies and the Final Master’s Project.

  • Design and building of civil and military RPAS.
  • Propulsion, power and energy sources.
  • Control, navigation and simulation systems.
  • Avionics, communications and networks.
  • Civil and military Payloads.
  • Operations and maintenance of civil and military RPAS.
  • Regulations, qualification and certification of RPAS.
  • Business development and entrepreneurship.

The Master includes a personalized guidance to help you find your professional goals in the aerospace sector.

The Master has a cost of € 8,000, which can be paid in three installments. This cost covers all the expenses of the student during the academic course, including practical trips.

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.

The academic activities at the University of Huelva and at the National Institute for Aerospace Technology (INTA) start in October and end in the month of May of the following year. From then and until December of that year, the students are training in companies and developing a Master’s Degree Final Project.
