The Master's program in Aerospace Engineering (MIA) emerged in 2010 as a new proposal for the formation of highly specialized human capital capable of applying and transmitting knowledge to meet science and technology needs of the academic and productive sectors as well as of the research and development sector, particularly in the aeronautical area.
The MIA program is a professionally oriented school program with a duration of six four-month periods. In each four-month period, the student will have a school load of two subjects (optional or curricular) and a presentation seminar on thesis advancement. The classes will be held on Saturdays from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm except for special cases previously reported by the Subdirectorate of Posgraduate studies.
Additionally, in the case of seminars, each student will agree on the date and time, as well as the means by which progress reviews will be carried out, prior to each presentation (it is required to meet at least one hour a week).
The MIA applicant must comply with the following profile:
Information for foreign students:
You must have a valid Migration Form to study in Mexico.
You must have revalidation of official academic record studies and professional certificate issued in Mexico.
Contact Lic. Axel Pamela Flores Salgado at the email firstname.lastname@example.org
The graduate of the Master´s in Aerospace Engineering will have the professional skills necessary for his/her performance in the aerospace and related sectors, nationally and internationally.
He/she will have acquired abilties that allow them:
To have covered 100% of the educational program in the period of time allowed and comply with the additional requirements established in the regulations.
In the first two four-month periods the student will study subjects corresponding to the common core. From the third to the fifth semester, the student will take elective subjects which are defined by the Thesis Director according to the orientation of the project.
In the sixth semester, the student will make a technical internship in a company, a research and development center or in a higher education institution. Students who come from the industry are exempt from this requirement.
Optional disciplinary fields:
The Aeronautical University in Queretaro (UNAQ), has as its mission:
To train professionals and researchers for the aerospace sector, with knowledge, competencies, values and national and international recognition, based on an educational model closely linked, open, flexible, relevant and for the social, economic and cultural development of Mexico.
Within the framework of its institutional mission, UNAQ has high impact lines of knowledge generation and application, aligned to the trends and needs of the sectors. For its development, UNAQ has academic bodies, graduate programs and scientific research and technological development projects that contribute to its consolidation with high impact scientific production.
Our institutional Knowledge Generation and Application Lines (LGACs) are:
It deals with the analysis, design and construction of mechanical and control systems, whose application will be aimed at solving problems and technological innovation in the aerospace and industrial areas. Considering additional activities, such as modeling, simulation, optimization and software development.
In this line, we work towards the development of knowledge-based solutions focused on aircraft components and structures from their functionality, mechanical performance, manufacturing and quality, through the study of materials, the physics of transformation processes and structural integrity analysis, using simulation, metrological and operations management tools.
Through its Graduate Programs, the Research and Graduate Studies Department of the UNAQ contributes to the development of its LGAC with the development of Graduate Theses, Publications and Human Resources Training in the disciplinary fields of:
We work on solutions focused on functionality, mechanical, thermal and fluid performance of aircraft and engines through the study of fluid mechanics, heat transfer, thermodynamics and mechanical design, as well as computational fluid dynamics analysis, using simulation tools, experimentation and theoretical models for this purpose.
We work on the study, modeling, optimization and control of aerospace systems, using tools such as computational modeling, simulation and real-time embedded systems based on aerospace industry standards.
Is worked in the understanding and material appliance in aeronautical components, the transformation processes are approached as well and their management in order to secure the quality and the development, with particular interest in the composite materials technology and thermal treatments.
Work is carried out on the mechanical integrity of structural components used in existing and new aeronautical systems in order to establish the safe service conditions of the structure during its estimated life and even to extend the service life under safe conditions.
