About the University

Engineering School in Aeronautics and Space

IPSA trains aeronautics and space enthusiasts through its specialist engineering course.

Located at the crossroads of the industrial and academic worlds and with its research laboratories dedicated to aerospace, it places innovation at the heart of its training and also promotes international openness. It is present in 4 French regions where many companies linked to the world of air and space are located.

The aim of the school’s training courses is to guarantee the acquisition of the essential knowledge for high-level expertise and to validate the necessary skills to take on various responsibilities as they arise over a career.

Based on a balance between teaching and project implementation (linked to industrial issues), IPSA’s courses integrate a strong aeronautical and space dimension from the very beginning of the training, evolving over the years. The student is an actor of their training by choosing during the engineering cycle the technological majors allowing them to individualize their courses and to acquire an expertise in a field of their choice.

Corporate conferences and international exposure are there to provide additional skills that forge the student’s critical thinking and decision-making ability.
