DOWNLOAD CATALOGREQUEST INFORMATION

A new masters degree in advanced structural analysis in which, with EDDM Training’s  innovative study method and formats, the students will learn to develop their career as a stress engineer.

Gaining access to a job in aerospace engineering without ample experience in the industry represents an important entry barrier. The Master in Advanced Structutral Analysis, MECEA makes this access easier by taking two roads: on one hand it qualifies the students with the techniques and know how that apply directly to a real job post, and on the other hand guarantees a period of paid internships which will broaden their professional experience in the area.

Adapting the successfull teaching method implanted since 2019 in the Master in Aeronautical Mechanical Design MEDMA, EDDM Training offers engineers a new masters degree in finite elements simulation with a practical learning process and conducted by highly qualified professionales from the aviation, space and defence sectors.

Throught the Master in Advanced Structutral Analysis, MECEA the student will be perfectly skilled to practice as a structural engineer from the moment he or she enters the job market, distinguishing themselves from the rest of engineering candidates for the same job post.

Unlinke tradicional structural analysis courses, MECEA offers formation based on an effective method of working from companies in the industry using real practical cases and recreating the true work enviroment in the classroom, always using standarized FEM software such as NASTRAN, Hyperworks and CAD design such as CATIA.

DURATION

9 months / 600 hours
