Program Objectives
Executives in aeronautical industry must have technical knowledge, managerial skills and a thorough understanding of the regulatory context associated with air transport. This multidisciplinary system creates major challenges that call for improvements of their capabilities and skills in developing and managing effectively and efficiently their respective domains.

In order to respond to these challenges, MSc program in International Air Transport Operations Management (IATOM) is developed. It is jointly offered by the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering of HKUST, in partnership with Ecole Nationale de l'Aviation Civile (ENAC), which is currently 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.

The program aims to equip those who want to enter the positions for versatile managers, air transport professional or to enhance the knowledge of those who have already been working in the sector. It combines the technical, economic and managerial skills that are specific to air transport which will improve and enhance the capabilities of students supporting engineering work for the aeronautics and air transport. It will allow students to get exposure to the various core aspects of air transport and how they are integrated with the technology development in the real world. Upon graduation, each student shall receive a joint institutional Master of Science in International Air Transport Operations Management (MSc IATOM) degree certificate from ENAC and HKUST. Since the IATOM degree is accredited and recognized by the French Ministry of Higher Education, a separate certificate recognized by the French Ministry of Higher Education will be issued by ENAC.
