Leonardo has signed a collaboration agreement with the University of Naples "Federico II" to launch the Aerotech Academy, an advanced training course on leading engineering issues. The course will provide skills and operational competence that can be immediately used in advanced technology industrial sectors. The initiative is aimed at students selected with a special notice (link to the notice of selection) and with a three-year degree or greater in engineering or other scientific disciplines. It will take place from March to December 2020 on the Leonardo site in Pomigliano d'Arco (Naples) at the Aerotech Campus, part of the nascent Leonardo Labs network designed to strengthen the technological development and competitive growth of the Company. With the support of the "Federico II" University, Leonardo's Aerotech Campus encourages innovation and openness to new technological solutions in line with market trends.

The Aerotech Academy will offer an interdisciplinary path that combines and integrates advanced research topics with applications to the manufacturing industry through innovative teaching and learning methodologies. The training activities, recognized by the Neapolitan university and carried out in English by university professors and experts from Leonardo, spans nine months full time, including six months of research and study in the classroom and three months of project work through the analysis, application and evolution of case studies of work experiences.

The Aerotech Academy’s didactic 2020 program is divided into three strands (core technologies of aerostructures, industry 4.0 and digitalization, and challenges for new generation aircraft), each of which is further articulated in specific insights.
