The institute

The Institut Supérieur de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace (ISAE-SUPAERO) is a French « grande école » of engineering, founded in 1909. It was the world’s first dedicated aerospace engineering school and is considered to be one of the best in Europe in the field. The school delivers a wide range of science and engineering degree programs. ISAE- SUPAERO is part of University of Toulouse, and Aerospace Valley.

Since its founding in 1909, ISAE-SUPAERO has produced more than 21,500 graduates. Some of them have achieved fame in their field, including: Henri Coandă, the discoverer of the Coandă effect; Henri Ziegler, father of the Airbus program; Frédéric d’Allest, first chairman of Arianespace; and Jean-François Clervoy, Thomas Pesquet, astronauts.

ISAE-SUPAERO has the following missions:

  • To educate engineers in the aeronautics and space fields and in related areas.
  • To engage in scientific research and technological innovation.
  • To deliver specialized graduate education and continuing education programs.
  • To deliver doctoral programs and national degrees equivalent to the MsC.

The Institute delivers the following educational programs: The ingénieur ISAE-SUPAERO program (FISE), The FISA co-op program, An International Masters Program in Aerospace Engineering (MAE), 6 Research Masters Programs, 15 Advanced Masters Programs, 6 Doctoral schools. Within the various ISAE-SUPAERO training courses, the DMSM is in charge of teaching in the areas of: mechanics of non-deformable and deformable solids; thin structures; mechanics of materials for aerospace structures; computational solid mechanics, ecodesign and design/computation/manufacture of structural parts (aerostructures).
