A new school in the ISAE Group: ENAC
The Ecole Nationale de l’Aviation Civile (ENAC – National School of Civil Aviation), has just joined the ISAE Group which includes the best French schools in the field of aeronautics and space engineering: ISAE-SUPAERO, ISAE-ENSMA, ISAE-SUPMECA, ESTACA and École de l’Air et de l’Espace.
The ISAE Group, which includes ISAE-SUPAERO, ISAE-ENSMA, ISAE-SUPMECA, ESTACA and the École de l’Air et de l’Espace, brings together major French schools in the field of aeronautics and space engineering. It now includes the ENAC, the French National School of Civil Aviation. This flagship school in the “air transport” ecosystem, which trains airline pilots, air traffic controllers, senior aviation technicians and aircraft instructors, will enable ISAE Group better respond to the transformation in the aviation sector and in higher education.
The ISAE Group: a group of major aerospace schools that share the values of excellence, openness and innovation
Since it was created in 2011, the ISAE Group (ISAE-SUPAERO, ISAE-ENSMA, ISAE-SUPMECA, ESTACA, and École de l’Air et de l’Espace) has become a key player in the aerospace sector. Its goal is to meet the needs of industrial companies and institutions in the aerospace sector by training multidisciplinary engineers to a high scientific level. More than half of the young engineering graduates hired by companies in the aerospace sector come from ISAE Group schools. Member and associate schools share common values of excellence, openness and innovation and meet strict eligibility criteria, such student recruitment, professional integration of graduates in the aerospace sector, and efficiency of governance. International openness, research, academic, scientific and industrial partnerships, and social outreach are also evaluated.
For students from different schools, belonging to the group means they can benefit from common course weeks (e.g. mobility week), exchange years (e.g. substitution year) or participate in common projects (e.g. the Euroglider project)
ENAC joins the ISAE Group to develop already strong links in the field of training and research
Meeting all these criteria, the Ecole Nationale de l’Aviation Civile (ENAC) has just joined the ISAE Group as an associate school.
Its mission is to provide higher education for initial and continuing training to meet the needs of a large number of private companies in the aeronautics sector (aircraft manufacturers, equipment suppliers, airports, airlines, etc.) and public bodies (Direction Générale de l’Aviation Civile (DGAC), civil aviation authorities, air navigation service providers, etc.) in France, Europe and around the world.
For many years, the school has maintained and developed strong links with schools in the ISAE Group, particularly in the fields of training and research.
