Preparing professional specialized in a key area for national development.

The Aeronautical Engineering program offers a solid and broad knowledge base focused on aeronautical applications.


UNIFEI’s Aeronautical Engineering program provides its students an understanding of the basic and fundamental aspects of engineering in the aeronautical area, as well as the context of this job market and of engineers’ activities in this area.

The growth of this labor market points the need for trained human resources to work in its various sectors. Initiatives such as EMBRAER’s Specialization in Engineering Program (PEE) aim to quickly prepare engineers with the minimum aeronautical culture to work in the company, while other small and medium-sized aeronautical companies do not have the resources for in-company training.

The student will receive habilitation in mechanical engineering plus aeronautical-specific training, and will be able to act in every sector that make up the aeronautical job market area, including: the aeronautical industry; operators and airlines; air taxi companies; companies providing specialized air services; aircraft, engines and systems maintenance companies; the public sector, including the regulatory sector, as well as civilian and military government operators.
