IATOM is a two year-degree accredited by the French Ministry of Education for those students who hold a Bachelor degree in a relevant subject. Located in Toulouse, a major centre for science and technology and the European aviation capital, ENAC is a gateway to air transport worldwide, recognized by ICAO and major civil aviation organizations as one of the world’s leading air transport educational institutions.

The application process is now closed for the Masters of Science. The new recruitment campaign will start next December for Septembre 2024 intake.


The Master IATOM is designed to emphasize the application of up-to-date engineering and management concepts or methods in the aeronautical and aviation industry.
The full time two-year Master IATOM aims at providing the technical and management expertise necessary for a future manager in an international company. The Master IATOM provides graduates with in-depth knowledge in aeronautical engineering, aeronautical project management and technology management. This meets the aeronautical industry demands for the innovative engineers they need to strengthen and develop their business.
The Master IATOM offers a comprehensive teaching program with a strong scientific background. Courses in aeronautical and aviation engineering, legal affairs, the social environment, economy and project management enable graduates to obtain junior management positions in the aeronautical industry, airlines, airports or civil aviation authorities: flight operations engineer, aircraft performance engineer, maintenance manager, airlines operations planning, marketing manager etc.
