What do engineers say to us...

  • I feel lost, I don't know how to orientate my professional path
  • I feel frustrated of sending my resume to all companies and no receive any answer
  • I don't want to do a Master degree and extend 2 o 3 more years after your degree.
  • I've got 2 Masters and companies are not interested on me
  • I don't feel confident to add a value into a company with my theoretical knowledge
  • I need a change on my professional path after a few years in a sector I don't like
  • I'd like to have a much more technical work to proof my engineering skills developing software and algorithms
  • My dream has always been to work for the Space Sector but I have no clue how to access into it.

After 20 years working for the most recognized space companies in Europe, I interviewed many different engineers looking for hiring opportunities, but unfortunately, most of them are not retained on the selection process.

WHY ENGINEERS ARE NOT HIRED?

The most common reason is « Specialization » and "Experience" , your resume does not show any specific learning, training or internship in something closely related to the position or the sector they are applying for.

Certain Universities and engineering schools often propose specialization masters, but usually long, costly and still too global and too theoretical, not always fitting the real market needs ...

THERE ARE BETTER OPTIONS
  • LESS COSTLY
    MORE EFFECTIVE
    RESULTS-DRIVEN

GAIN PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE BY DEVELOPING A REAL PROJECT FOLLOWING EUROPEAN SPACE AGENCY (ESA) STANDARDS

The DIRECTOR

I'm Eduardo Tapias, the director and founder of GNSS Academy, graduated in Aeronautics in Madrid (Spain), I count with more than 20 passionate years on the Space Sector of Satellite Navigation, well known as SatNav or GNSS, All I spent all my career working either at big multinational companies such as Thales Alenia Space and GMV and also small companies, always mainly involved within the algorithmic core and performance system of both European Navigation Systems led by European Space Agency (ESA).

As technical director of a Start-up in France, We needed to quickly grow thanks to our implication as a partner of Airbus Defence & Space Consortium, leader of the European Navigation Program EGNOS V3 for European Space Agency (ESA) and the European Commission (EC). During this time, I personally suffered the difficulties to find well prepared engineers on this sector as well as the lack of specialized training fitting the companies real needs.

Today, as the Director of GNSS Academy and consultant of start-ups in San Francisco (USA), I still observe this thriving market in exponential growing with the development of the new precise positioning systems for Drones or Autonomous cars, which are some of the many other applications of the Satellite Navigation for the next years and decades

As a passionate of GNSS technology, I support the GNSS Market from its main asset: Engineers, creating the E2C path between Engineers seeking new job opportunities and the reference Companies demanding young qualified profiles through our amazing JSNP 5-months training virtual Program.

THE GNSS OR GLOBAL NAVIGATION SATELLITE SYSTEMS IS ONE OF THE TECHNOLOGIES OF THE SPACE SECTOR THAT IS CHANGING THE WORLD OF TRANSPORTATION, AUTOMATION, SYNCHRONIZATION, ROBOTICS AND IT'S A CRUCIAL VECTOR ON THE DIGITALIZATION AND INDUSTRY 4.0

¿ What's the GNSS ?

GNSS stands for Global Navigation Satellite Systems

GNSS involves companies, programs and projects aiming to build systems and technologies for the determination of the position and time thanks to the information transmitted from satellite signals.

Satellite Signals are provided all over the world by a variety of satellite positioning systems, including global and regional constellations as well as Augmentation Systems, such as :

  • Global systems: GPS (USA), GLONASS (Russia), Galileo (Europe), BeiDou (China)
  • Regional systems: QZSS (Japan), IRNSS (India), and BeiDou regional (China)
  • Augmentation Systems (SBAS): WAAS (USA), EGNOS (Europe), MSAS (Japan), GAGAN (India), SDCM (Russia) and SNAS (China)

GNSS Market is split into 2 main segments:

Upstream Market Segment

The Upstream Sector embeds all those companies and institutions involved on the development of the global and regional systems which are in charge of broadcasting a reliable Signal-In-Space (SIS) through the conception, design, implementation and deployment of the two main segments: the space segment with a satellite constellation and the ground segment with a dedicated Earth stations network

Downstream Market Segment

Downstream Sector embeds companies exploiting the broadcast Signal-In-Space (SIS) provided by the Upstream sector, such as receivers manufactures leading to provide a robust, reliable, and precise positioning and timing for the multiple applications in road, aviation, maritime, railway, space, farming, agriculture, mapping, unmanned vehicles, drones and all commercial location-based applications

ABOUT THE DIRECTOR IN LINKEDIN

Integra Nuestro Equipo de Trainees

FELLOWS AT EC, ESA AND INDUSTRIAL LEADERS

Didier Flament - EGNOS Program Manager at ESA

ESA - European Space Agency

Eduardo joined EGNOS System Performance team in 2004, belonging to the Navigation Engineering department at Thales Alenia Space that I was leading. He has high levels of energy, competence, creativity and passion, without forgetting the human qualities and high sense of team spirit, he showed during these years. I have had the great pleasure to see Eduardo coming back on the EGNOS program when we (ESA) and as ESA EGNOS program manager, have signed the EGNOS V3 program implementation contract with Airbus Industrial team including Abbia, beginning of 2018. His experience and know-how accumulated over all these years on GNSS System Engineering in general and on EGNOS performance and algorithm design are extremely valuable and his departure is de facto an issue for EGNOS V3. 

Carlos Lopez - EGNOS System Performances Manager at ESA

ESA - European Space Agency

Eduardo is one of those rare talented professionals who has the will to arrive to a win-win situation between customer/client. He has always had an active attitude, proposing new requirements and challenging the customer's ones so to understand their underneath need. I consider this as a very valuable attitude that helps to define a good-quality end product. He has a very strong background on GNSS, both for algorithm and system level. I look forward to meeting him again in a future project.

Philippe Lemeu - Galileo Consortium Manager at Thales Alenia Space

Thales Alenia Space

"As Galileo consortium manager and EGNOS programme director in Thales Alenia Space, I had the opportunity during many years to work with Eduardo. Eduardo has a very strong knowledge in Navigation by satellite domain as well as a strong network with all major navigation actors like ESA, ESSP, GSA, industry ....
He is engaged, accountable and able to think out of the box. Last but not least, his soft skills are outstanding with a good communication skill and a real active listening skill. He is also able to explain hard concepts using simple words.
He is for me a good example of what all the engineers should be and it was a real pleasure to work with him."

Xavier Berenguer - Technical Manager of African SBAS GNSS program

Thales Alenia Space - France

"Eduardo became a technical reference in the GNSS domain. Beyond his good technical skills in applied mathematics, he also has strong analysis capacity and pragmatism allowing to quickly find simple solutions to the daily problematics. His sense of relationships together with a true interest to understand and satisfy the clients allowing him to gain the confidence of the European Space Agency (ESA), and thus to actively contribute to the program success"

GNSS ENGINEERS

Myriam Foucras - R&D Engineer on Satellite Signals Processing

CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientific)

Eduardo is a recognized technical expert in the field and has a big network, so it is a chance to be able to benefit from his knowledge and share his enthusiasm and passion

We observe that the passage between students and engineers is often complicated: apprehension, misunderstanding, inadequacy, etc. This can be explained by a lack of communication between academy and industry, and it is necessary to better understand each other's expectations and needs. The "GNSS academy" plays the role of facilitator and gives confidence to the two future collaborators. For a young graduate, training by an expert in the field can only be a great springboard. For a company, hiring an engineer who knows the field, its context and who will be efficient. It is beneficial for everyone. The GNSS sector is very powerful, in France, Europe, the United States, all over the world, so it's clearly a sector where there are and where there will be a lot of opportunities 

Fayaz Bacard. - GNSS Software Manager

ABBIA GNSS Technologies

Eduardo was my boss at ABBIA as the technical director of the company. I appreciated so much his work as a manager. During all these years, he made the company to significantly grow reaching the leadership as a reference company on the GNSS Tools development for performances qualification as part of European SBAS program EGNOS V3 within the Consortium led by Airbus Defence and Space. He always showed a proactive attitude and a good understanding of the clients needs by trying to find the best tailored solutions. Eduardo helped me do things that I thought were technically Impossible. All team and myself really learned a lot thanks to Eduardo’s training to become experts on GNSS Sector. Eduardo always pushed the team to deliver On time a On Quality Software Product to our main customers. Now, he’s gone from the company, and I strongly recommend him as a team leader to build GNSS Software systems
