For more than ten years, the aerospace industry in Mexico has risen and taken its rightful place in the world, postioning our country among the first ten nations that supply more aeronautical parts, but Queretaro is the Mexican state that leads this industry, which leads to the question: How did Queretaro accomplished this task?

In Querétaro, educational institutions have opened a wide offer in the field of aerospacial sector, as it is the state that most focuses its higher education in this field. The offer covers eight different curricula, ranging from engineering to Higher Universitarian Technician qualifications, such as Aeronautical Engineering in Manufacturing, Engineering in Aeronautical Mechanical Design, TSU in Avionics, TSU in Aeronautical Maintenance, Avionics Area, among others, according to regional study “Knowing the Aerospace Industry 2018”, conducted by Inegi, ProMéxico and the Mexican Federation of the Aerospace Industry (FEMIA).

The following states with the greatest aerospacial educational offer are Baja California, Sonora and Chihuahua, followed by the State of Mexico.

An example of this drive of educational institutions to the aerospace industry in our state is the recent agreement that Airports and Auxiliary Services (ASA) made with the Aeronautical University of Querétaro (UNAQ) to train flight safety crews.

The public sector has been in charge of promoting R & D activities, which attract more value added projects to the region and better paid jobs. Public research centers such as the Center for Engineering and Industrial Development (Cidesi), the Center for Research and Advanced Studies of the National Polytechnic Institute (Cinvestav) Querétaro, or the High Technology Center (CAT) of the National Autonomous University of Mexico ( UNAM), complement the infrastructure and studies of specialized universities such as the UNAQ, the Autonomous University of Querétaro and the National College of Technical Professional Education (Conalep) Aeronautics, among other specialized centers for the study of aeronautics.

In addition, Conacyt has delivered more resources to Queretaro from the Innovation Stimulus Program (PEI) in aeronautics between 2009 and 2015.

Currently, in the region there is a great boost towards the space manufacturing industry, since there are 26 industrial plants dedicated to the aersopacial sector in Queretaro, followed by companies dedicated to innovation and design (R & D), maintenance services, maintenance and repair, according to figures from the Road Map of the Aerospace Sector for the Region of Querétaro 2017, issued by ProMéxico.
