Master's Degree in Air Navigation Services

ENAIRE, together with the Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM) and the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM), and in collaboration with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), is offering a specialised and unique training programme in air navigation services management, backed by its experience and solid knowledge of the sector.

ENAIRE's Master's Degree in Air Navigation Services Management is currently certified by the ICAO's TRAINAIR PLUS programme.

The goal of the Master's degree is to give candidates the specialised technical, operational and management skills needed to gain a broad understanding of air navigation services and the challenges facing the sector.

The programme is aimed at management by combining knowledge and actual case studies, with a focus on strategy and the development of the management and decision-making skills needed to solve problems in a complex and constantly changing sector. See our brochure for more details about the programme.

This Master's is mainly intended for ENAIRE professionals, international service providers and other organisations in the sector: airlines, airport managers, regulators and supervisors, military authorities, weather service providers, as well as the technology industry, consultants and university graduates interested in the sector. The characteristics of the participants will be conducive to business networking and, as they share their experiences, the course will provide a detailed picture of the sector.

Our commitment is to train future air navigation leaders and managers.


ENAIRE's Master's Degree in Air Navigation Services Management can be done online or in-person, as decided by the student.


The programme is taught by a group of instructors from the sector and academia. The instructors are highly qualified in the subjects they teach, combining specialised knowledge and hands-on experience, as well as teaching skills.


Upon completion of each module, ENAIRE will issue a professional diploma that accredits the candidate as an Air Navigation Services specialist. Once the modules and the master's thesis are complete, the students receive a Master's degree, issued jointly by the UPM and UAM, as well as a certificate issued by ICAO.
