Professional Master's Program in Aeronautical and Mechanical Engineering

ITA’s partnership with EMBRAER, this Program is designed for engineers from diverse modalities who want to work with integrated product development, technology, and innovation.

Program Overview

The Professional Master’s Program in Aeronautical Engineering at ITA was created to meet the demand for human resources at the Brazilian Aeronautical Company (EMBRAER), offering curricular content dedicated to the company’s technological needs.

The Professional Master’s Degree in Aeronautical Engineering at ITA is part of the PEE – Specialization Program in Engineering, offered by EMBRAER.

The main differentiating characteristics of the Program are:

(1) Financial support guaranteed by Embraer, as recommended by Ordinance 80 of CAPES.

(2) Highly competitive selection exam, carried out in several stages at the national level by the company itself and by ITA professors, for candidates who graduated in engineering. During the selection, there are written tests, group dynamics, and interviews.

(3) Full-time dedication by the student: Once approved and classified, this master’s student receives a scholarship through the Casemiro Montenegro Filho Foundation, dedicating himself full-time to the Program.

(4) Priority hiring by Embraer for graduates of this Professional Master’s Degree Program to work in the area of specialization for which they graduated.

ITA Mission
