Welcome to IPSA Graduate School of Engineering specialized in Aircraft, Space, and Smart Mobility!
IPSA, where the aeronautical engineering dream comes true
Since its creation in 1961, IPSA has been driven by the constant concern to match the training provided to students with the needs of companies. Thus, our Master in Aeronautical Engineering is composed of majors and specializations which constitute the basics of acquiring and deepening essential and solid knowledge in the field. This program is continuously evolving and updated under the guidance and work of the School's Development Department.
The diplôme d’ingénieur, equivalent to a master’s degree in Aeronautical Engineering awarded by IPSA certifies graduates’ ability to tackle any problem related to aeronautics and space. IPSA training also allows graduates to work in related advanced fields of aeronautics and space, particularly in land transport, which uses techniques and technologies similar to those used in aeronautics.
The master's program is based on a balance between academic and practical activities: lectures, tutorials, seminars, design consultancy, projects related to industrial environments, and internships. The student is the main actor in his training by choosing a major and different option allowing him to personalize his courses and obtain expertise in a field of his choice. Business conferences and international openness provide additional skills in building student’s critical thinking and ability to make decisions.
The master is mainly taught in English. Some courses are taught in French from the second semester.
All along with the master program, students benefit from intensive French language courses as they must reach B2 level in French at the end of the study years in order to obtain their degree.
A Graduate School of Engineering close to the industry
In over 60 years of existence, IPSA has forged relationships and lasting partnerships with major players in the aerospace sector. These partners, voluntarily meet students and discuss various aspects (scientific, technical, cultural, and economic) of the engineering profession. This proximity to the industry allows IPSA, through its Development Council, to align training with the needs of the industry. Alumni, working in major companies in the sector readily return to their school to share their experiences with the future engineers at IPSA.
Passion is the principal motivation
If there is a school where passion is present, it's IPSA. The associations' projects, due to their complexity, reveal the passionate side of Ipsaliens. IPSA also organizes various events to enable its students to live their passion such as conferences of aeronautics actors in France, flight simulators, presence at various air shows and gatherings.
