Latest opinions and testimonials from students, professors and professionals about the Master Aeronautical Mechanical Design, MEDMA.
The MEDMA Master has a very tight agenda for the preparation of what will be expected of us as soon as we join our jobs. The professors who teach class are most responsible for design sections in different companies and airplane models, and constantly insist on the form, method and times that must be fulfilled so that from the first day we are aware and familiar about what we are going to ask in the future as professionals in the sector.
In addition and as a complement to everything we develop in class with the theoretical, we have collective practices to assemble different solutions and devices of specific requirements in a specific section of the plane, where we have to defend our proposals and apply everything we learn by mentioning regulations, manufacturing methods, product configuration … among others
In the first practices we were a bit lost, but as we move forward and with the help of the teachers as there are many facilities to solve doubts, we begin to feel more autonomous when it comes to drawing and presenting convenient solutions to the problems that make us face and that surely we will find ourselves in our jobs later on.
A success, from beginning to end. ”

I have seen first hand the good reception that we have in the sector to the students who attended the master, opening many doors in addition to allowing us to make first class contacts in the industry.
Apart from everything technical I also have personal experience, as for my colleagues and the teachers everything has been perfect, kindness and treatment.
In short, it is highly recommended to everyone who is looking to enter the world of mechanical design. ”

MEDMA students clearly mark the difference in the selection process to incorporate designers without previous experience in Altran. ”

The dedication of the teachers is incredible during the master’s and once you finish they are still there to help you when needed.
As for the practices in companies, I can only say good things. The adaptation is very fast and you start to get useful work almost from the first day. Coming from the master we have a solid base to start working and thanks to that we start to do more complex tasks much sooner than a person without that training, with the consequent learning that that supposes.
And finally, and I speak with knowledge of the cause, having such a complete master is highly valued when looking for job opportunities.
Personally I am delighted to have completed it and I recommend it 100%. If someone wants to contact me, you can find me on linkedin. I will be happy to solve your doubts to the best of my ability. ”

From a labor point of view, it is an opportunity to be able to gain experience through the Master’s practices to which you arrive with a basis for the training received in it, I think it is important to then be able to continue developing your professional career within the sector, Doing an internship is fundamental, if you have not done them in your academic stage, look for some Master with practices in my opinion is basic.
The Master has also helped me to know a sector that I did not know enough, since my training was aimed at other sectors, which I found quite interesting. I’m not the one to give advice to anyone, but if someone is interested in doing a Master, I think the main thing is to know what you want to do, where you want to run a career, it seems easy, but I was not clear, I chose this Master based on those questions, and I think it was an appropriate decision. ”

“MEDMA provides the designer with the deepest and most varied knowledge of CATIA, learning to master numerous modules and tools that allow working in various aeronautical design disciplines.
The theoretical content of the program is profound and varied, and the practical cases recreate perfectly the work environments that the designer will find in the day to day work.
Upon finishing the master’s degree, the student will have acquired the level and knowledge of a designer with 2 or 3 years of experience. “
Diego de Juan. MEDMA Student 2013-2014
“A training like the one provided by the Master’s Degree in Aeronautical Mechanical Design (MEDMA) was something I believe necessary in the current environment of the Spanish aerospace industry, and we are increasingly involved in more demanding programs and in the conditions of a multicultural environment that demand Be prepared for any new challenge.
In a changing environment, adaptation is essential for success and this is where MEDMA provides the training that was missing, a training aimed at new graduates or professionals who wish to focus their career on mechanical design in our aeronautical case and which takes take into account the current situation and needs of the sector.
The contents of the master reflect the different sections that affect the current process of design documentation, not only methodology but also include a general description of each of the different design disciplines. A vision that in normal circumstances would take years to obtain.
In short, MEDMA is an added value that, many of us who have been dedicated to it for a long time, would have liked to have had at our disposal before being fully involved in our daily functions.”

“One of the things that I liked most about MEDMA are the practices; with them you really learn to apply all the concepts taught in the theoretical modules and they are also very interesting and entertaining. The simulated work environment makes you feel really inside a team and you are designing your own plane.
Another thing that I would highlight is the professionalism and dedication of the experts who come to teach the classes. The MEDMA team manages to spread their passion for mechanical design and they are always willing to help, they are true “cracks”.
Finally, I am also left with the amount of knowledge acquired in both mechanical design and the CatiaV5 tool, a knowledge that I have already seen first-hand how highly valued it is in the world of work. “

“The MEDMA Master prepares students to be productive from the first day they join their job and, most importantly, have criteria when designing and documenting.”
Manuel Tavira, MEDMA Professor , Design Engineer – Airbus Defence & Space
“You can identify a pressing need for your client, create a company in record time to be able to give an answer to that need but if at the time of designing and creating the first prototype we are 12 years old it is likely that:
– the customer no longer has that need,
– the need has been covered by our competence,
– or, in the best of cases, that the development costs are so high that the amortization will never cover the investment made.
This is the problem that it is intended to cover with the Lean Design subject in the EDDM master’s degree. Create components with a minimum cost, in the shortest possible time, complying with all customer requirements and with proven reliability and performance before being put into production “
