Presentation

The Bachelor's Degree in Aeronautical Management offers comprehensive training in the logistics of air transport in which students specialise in socioeconomic, legal and logistical issues of importance to the aeronautical sector, and in basic areas of air navigation. The aim is to train up professionals who are able to take decisions in the organisation and planning of airlines and in the strategic and logistic planning of airports.

Transport in general, and air transport in particular, have become a key factor in the competitiveness and sustainability of industry in an increasingly more globalised productive economy. This has led to a notably high growth in the aeronautics sector both on a European and a worldwide scale, which also affects Catalonia and Spain. Furthermore, the demand for air transport among European passengers is expected to double over the next twenty years, which will require professionals in aeronautics management who can guarantee an efficient, accessible, safe and sustainable air transport system. The needs of this sector are reflected in the employment rates of current graduates, which are very high, and the fact that the sector provides grant funding for final year students on work placements.

The UAB is the first in Spain to have offered a Degree in Aeronautical Management within the parameters of the European Higher Education Area, a degree that it has been teaching since 2004-2005, and for which it is a national benchmark, alongside the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. At international level, the main benchmarks are to be found in the USA. With over 15,000 airports there, the aeronautical sector in general is highly developed and there is a long tradition of university training in this field. Obviously, Europe is also aware of the sector's need for expansion and improved competitiveness. Training and research are clearly seen as the best way forward for the sector to tackle the main problems affecting it. This degree offered by the UAB fits perfectly into this strategy.
