Master of Science Aeronautics and Space - International Air Transport Operations Management

The École nationale de l'aviation civile (ENAC) (French Civil Aviation University) is the largest aeronautical university in Europe and the only aviation-oriented university in France offering a wide and complete panel of aeronautics-oriented degree bearing programs and continuing & professional education programs, serving the aeronautical world, and particularly the air transport sector.

ENAC in partnership with USTH opens the first Master of Science in International Air Transport Operation Management (IATOM) in Vietnam and in South East Asia. IATOM is a two year-degree accredited by the French Ministry of Education for those students who hold a Bachelor's degree in a relevant subject. The courses are taught entirely in English to embed students in an international research and training environment. The students will study for 01 semester at the USTH campus and the next 2 semesters at ENAC campus in Toulouse, France. In the final semester, the students will take internships in Vietnam or any Asian/European country.
