As the Mexican aerospace industry grows, so does the need for an increased supply of skilled workers.

Over the last dozen, or so, years the Mexican aerospace industry has made great developmental strides in both quantitative and qualitative terms, and is now tenth largest supplier of aerospace structural, machined engine components and parts, and electronic, as well as other, assemblies to the United States.

The Mexican aeropace industry is mainly composed of several large geographically based clustes. There are three primary groupings, and they are found in western part of the country, mainly in Baja Califonia and Sonora; the central part of the country, mostly in the State of Chihuahua; and in the country’s south central region, with the bulk of aerospace manufacturing and related activities taking place in the Mexican State of Queretaro.

The presentation linked to below was deliver by Jorge Gutierrez Velasco de Rodriguez, president of the Universidad Aeronautico en Queretaro (UNO) during Mexico Now‘s Aerospace Industry Summit in September of 2013. Queretaro is home to many globally recognized aerospace manufacturers. Among them are Canada’s Bombardier, Spain’s Aernnova, France’s Messier-Dowty and the UK’s Meggitt, PLC.

Gutierrez Velasco de Rodriguez’s presentation illustrates UNO’s primary goal of providing the Mexican aerospace industry with manufacturing professionals and researchers whose training and competence will ensure the sectors future domestic expansion. In addition to training CNC machinists and aerospace welders, the Universidad Aeronautico en Queretaro provides the Mexican aerospace industry with individuals skilled in special processes, including electro mechanical heat treatment.
