French aerospace industry supports its engineering school!

The French aerospace industry is mobilizing to support the Institut Supérieur de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace (ISAE), the country's leading aeronautical engineering school. Several leading aerospace companies met in Toulouse on September 5 to express their support for ISAE. Jean-Paul Herteman, Chairman and CEO of Safran, and a graduate of ISAE's predecessor, Sup'Aéro, took part in this operation.

In response to a request from the ISAE-SUPAERO Foundation, members of the French aerospace industry clearly indicated their commitment to supporting this school, ISAE, at a strategic moment in its development. French industry is also contributing to the success of the school's transformation by providing the resources needed to support its growth, an essential aspect of the school's drive to establish its position as a world-class establishment in an increasingly competitive environment.

Several heads of leading French aerospace companies (Airbus Group, Dassault Aviation, Safran, Thales, Zodiac, etc.), all graduates of this prestigious engineering school, took part in this day-long event, designed to provide information and foster discussions. In particular, they hosted a press conference organized for members of the French aerospace journalists' trade association AJPAE (Association des Journalistes Professionnels de l'Aéronautique et de l'Espace).

ISAE was created by the 2007 merger of two leading engineering schools, "Sup'Aéro", founded in 1909 and ENSICA, founded in 1945.
The ISAE-SUPAERO Foundation was created in 2007 at the same time as ISAE.
Its role is to help spread the school's influence and reputation in both national and international markets, and to facilitate the deployment of innovative educational projects, foster the development of creative new enterprises, and encourage the social inclusion and scientific careers of young people from all walks of life.
