Currently, the Mexican market makes 85 percent of metalworking parts used in the aerospace sector in  Portugal, Germany, China and Spain, according to the ITESM in Puebla.

This, through a press release from Puebla's Technological Institute of Superior Studies of Monterrey (ITESM) which indicates that 24 students of the Engineering and Applied Sciences school  at said university are the only ones in the country that are certified with CAE, awarded by the US firm  MCS Software.

For his part, the director of the Mechanical Engineering Department, Carlos Gijón Rivera, said that this certification allows future professionals in these areas to obtain the knowledge to recognize the conditions that can undergo an engineering part, which are used in the automotive, aerospace sector and industries engaged in the manufacture of work sheet, repair, assembly and processing of metal products.

He added that certifications in the country are scarce, so these skills will enable future professionals to be placed in the job by working in companies in reducing time and cost of making these pieces.

Gijón Rivera also said that these trainings are necessary for students, since he remembered that in 2013 foreign direct investment in this industry was greater than 35 billion dollars.
