The participants of the 2016–2017 IAS annual Master program are currently benefiting from a work placement. The selected companies are industrial corporates such as Airbus Defence and Space, Airbus Helicopters, Derichebourg and Altys Technologies, consulting firms or service providers such as Star Engineering, Euroconsult, SatConsult and Three Oaks Consulting, or other entities such as Centre d’Essais Aéronautiques de Toulouse (CEAT), Institut Clément Ader, Université Paris Diderot, etc. For a five to six months’ period, the trainees will be immersed in a French company and learn about professional relationship in a different culture, which will help to enhance their professional development.
While these trainees soon start working on their Master’s thesis, IAS has already selected most of the participants of the 2017–2018 class. At the very beginning of August, the Institute will welcome to its premises 38 trainees from China, Colombia, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, South Korea, Taiwan and Vietnam. Some will join the Master program in the frame of an Airbus Airbus Defence and Space offset scheme, others in the frame of the vocational training program of their respective employers, such as AVIC or CAST. As announced in our previous issue, these newcomers will benefit from the brand new Summer Program, which will offer an even more immersive experience in the French linguistic, cultural, technological, innovative and industrial heritage. The sponsor of the new class is Mr. Patrick FARDEAU, Vice-President Global Sales and Market Development, Aerospace & Defence, Dassault Systèmes.
