IPSA: Aeronautics and Space Graduate School of Engineering

IPSA is an engineering school offering a 5-year syllabus (accreditated by the CTI) 100% dedicated to Aeronautics and Space. The interest in « everything aerospace » is a particular source of motivation in the school and the passion is shared by both students and lecturers. IPSA is located in Paris and Toulouse.

Our Bachelor program (3 years) is taught in French (in Paris and Toulouse) and initiates students into the aerospace field. The subjects studies are Mathematics, Physics, Aeronautical Sciences, Computer sciences, and Electronics. In their 3rd year, students can specialize in aerospace systems or aerospace vehicles.

Our Master program (2 years) is fully taught in English (in Paris only). During these 2 years, students can individualize their courses through options and scientific majors (Energy and Propulsion, Mechanics and Aircraft Structures, Embedded Systems, Mechatronics, Space launchers and satellites, etc).

At the crossroads of the Industrial and Academic worlds, research is one of the fundamental axes of the IPSA pedagogy. IPSA has 7 research laboratories:

  • Laboratory in Autonomous Aerial Systems (LS2A)
  • Laboratory in Intelligent Systems (LS2I)
  • Laboratory in Complex Systems (LSCI)
  • Laboratory in Numerical Simulation and Calculations (LSNC)
  • Laboratory in Thermal and Thermodynamics (L2TI)
  • Laboratory in Materials and Structures Mechanics (L2MS)
  • Laboratory in Aerodynamic testing and Modelling (LEMA)

The Master programme

The Master programme is composed of majors and options (Energy and Propulsion, Mechanics and Aircraft Structures, Embedded Systems, Mechatronics, Space launchers and satellites, etc.) which constitute axes of deepening essential to the acquisition of solid knowledge in their field. These developments have always been guided by the work of the school's development council.

The « diplôme d’ingénieur », equivalent to a Master of Aerospace engineering awarded by the IPSA places the graduate as able 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 curriculum of IPSA's master degree fully meets the future expectations of French and world industry in the aeronautical field.

IPSA is accreditated by the « Commission des Titres d’Ingénieurs » (CTI, accreditation body for the French engineering schools), holds the EUR-ACE® label and is part of the IONIS Education Group. https://www.ionis-group.com/
