GMV Chair

The GMV Chair (Cátedra GMV) was born in 2004 to lay down the collaboration guidelines between GMV and the Higher Aeronautical Engineering School (Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería Aeronáutica: ETSIA) of the Polytechnic University of Madrid (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid: UPM) for training higher aerospace-system technicians and conducting R&D tasks in this area.

The purpose of the Chair is to drive ETSIA teaching activities and joint R&D by ETSIA and GMV, thus contributing towards their ongoing updates in relation to science, technology and state-of-the-art management methods.

Every year the GMV Chair awards the following prizes to the outstanding students:

  • Professor Juan José Martínez Prize for Excellence
  • GMV Chair Prize for Excellence in the space specialty (ETSIAE)
  • GMV Chair Prize for Excellence in the space specialty (ETSIA)
  • Prize for the best degree and science and aerospace technology specialty

Thanks to the GMV Chair, degree students in their first year of Master's studies have the chance to take part in our summer internship program, where they can learn from our employees, find out about our various products and find their feet in the working world.

We at GMV promote initiatives that give students a better idea of the various technological activities. To do so we organize visits to our site by high-school pupils and university students, institutes and associations. These visits give them a first-hand view of what it is like to work in a cutting-edge technology firm.
