Human Capital & Research

Among the main concerns of foreign aerospace companies when they come to Mexico is if they will be able to hire sufficient, qualified human capital. Several entities have made efforts to supply it, demonstrated in the creation of Mexico’s first and only aeronautic university after Bombardier’s arrival to the state of Queretaro. But as the sector grows, the need for qualified technicians and engineers will increase in turn.

This chapter reviews the measures currently being implemented to train and educate aerospace professionals at all levels of education, from technicians to post-graduate studies. The section will also be dedicated to the outstanding efforts of Mexican research centers and the latest technologies and developments they are generating. Many research centers also provide services to the private industry and this chapter will showcase them and their potential revenue generation.
