Course Details

Objectives: ISAE SUPAERO Graduate Program trains general andmulti-skilled engineers ready to work across a broad spectrumof activities.
Its program covers all the basic engineering disciplines whileremaining based on aeronautics andspace, the privileged field of application for the mostadvanced methodologies and techniques.
Within the ISAE group, the ISAE-SUPAERO Graduate Program ensures qualitytraining (for its engineers) enabling them to be active managers in major projects in all economic sectors.
Aeronautics and space account for approximately 50% of graduaterecruitment.
The major principles that have made for the success of this Master's degree now more than ever influence current changes being introduced:
• providing scientific training to a high level of excellence in all engineering sciences,
• privileging a transverse (or crossdisciplinary) approach that allows for the integration of all theoretical knowledge in a given field,
• granting project work a substantial share in the teaching curriculum,
• ensuring general studies remain at the heart of the teaching provided.

While keeping its multidisciplinary dimension, adapted to the needs for the aerospace sector, the training has evolved since the beginning of 2015:
- Intellectual, scientific and human openness through a consolidation of the pedagogy in the form of projects,
- Strengthened course of innovation,
- Course with double skill,
- Personalization of the program, to continue to train engineers of very high level

Intended for: Students

Degree Level (EU) : 7 - (EQC level or equivalent)

Admission requirements: In the 1st year
• students from the preparatory classes for the grandes écoles (Concours Mines-ponts)
• students from INP-CPP
• on securities for holders of a license or equivalent title

In 2nd year
• on title for holders of a Master 1 or an engineering qualification or a foreign title of equivalent level
• engineers of weapons studies and techniques (IETA) or army officers
• Polytechnique application school for polytechnic students (civilians admitted on credential and engineers of the armaments admitted by right)
• students from partner institutions abroad

In the 3rd year
• Polytechnique application school for polytechnic students (civilians admitted on credential and engineers of the armaments admitted by right)

These admission channels represent the diversity of recruitment methods of the ISAE-SUPAERO training.

Duration and terms: 3,2 or 1 year depending the yera of entrance to ISAE-SUPAERO

Notes: ISAE-SUPAERO Graduate Program attaches considerable importance to the development of active teaching methods through personal projects and internships.
Opportunities for practical training are numerous with internships, Short Research Projects, the Final Project (Master's Thesis), internshipsabroad, six month / one year internships and labwork.
SUPAERO Graduate Program also provides teaching in economic and social sciences to a high level.
Finally, the program attaches considerable importance to the personal fulfilment of the student byoffering lessons in general cultureas well as compulsory practice of sports.
