June 7th - ESTACA Campus Paris Saclay will host the Imagine Mobility Forum 2018 by Mov’eo

The 2018 annual convention of Mov'eo will be held at ESTACA Campus, the Graduate School of Aeronautical technology and Automotive Construction (Paris) on June 7th 2018. Every year, this event brings together over 300 major players of the R&D Automotive and Mobility sectors (60% of decision-makers) to facilitate the networking between participants and to conducts a prospective reflection on tomorrow's Mobility.

Visit ESTACA's Lab and Fablab, and discover our research topics on innovative technologies for transport and mobility: green transportation innovations, sustainability, smart and adapted to new mobilities.

Topics to the ESTACA session:

  • Fault control strategies for autonomous vehicle pacification
  • Collaborative design of embedded automotive mechatronics systems
  • Characterization and analysis of pollutants resulting from automotive transport infiltrating vehicle cabins
  • Acceptability study of a bike trajectory choice based on AIR QUALITY criterion

Topics of the other sessions:

  • Blockchain: the ultimate bypassing. New Eldorado for mobility or just a buzz?
  • Smart Grid: the key for electric mobility solutions?

Following the session, people can visit the ESTACA laboratories and Fablab.

Mobility Week for ISAE Students

actu semaine mobilite 2

Like every year, students from the ISAE group (SUPAERO, ENSMA, Ecole de l’Air) came together during Mobility Week. From 3rd to 6th April, more than 330 of them participated.

200 4th-year Aeronautics students from ESTACA attended classes taught in all of the Group ISAE programs. For its part, ESTACA welcomed around twenty students from SUPAERO, ENSMA and the Ecole de l’Air.

At the same time, 41 4th year students from the Space program and 70 students from other schools attended the Séminaire ESPACE organized at the Ecole de l’Air in Salon de Provence. The topic this year was “One Space, of Challenges”. Through conferences and round tables, they discovered the current and future challenges facing the space sector: an opportunity to debate and innovate during group workshops. Numerous excellent civilian and military speakers brought their experience and insights to these four days, rich in lessons and debate.

This week extends the teaching provided to students from the four schools and promotes exchange between students.

To Acquire Concrete Knowledge within the Industrial Worlds


One of the strengths of ESTACA is its proximity to companies. The goal is to enable all students acquire concrete knowledge in line with current issues in the industrial world. Corporate work experience, teachers mostly from the professional world, projects proposed by industry and site visits all contribute to providing training in the concrete challenges of the transport industry.

To understand the reality of an engineer’s job from the inside, the School organises classes within companies, and specifically for 5th-year students who spend a week in Toulouse. On 22nd March last, it was 3rd-year students from the Paris-Saclay campus who spent half a day visiting industrial sites. Thirteen companies hosted small groups: Alstom, RATP Dev, Valeo (2 sites), la DGA (French Army), Hutchinson, Sogeti High Tech, Sopra Steria, G2métric, FEV, Airbus Defence and Space, Heli-Union, ADP/AFMAE and ONERA.

These visits were an opportunity to discover how companies operate and the latest innovations they are working on. The companies opened the doors of their laboratories, research centres, aerodromes, wind tunnels, Digital’Labs, virtual reality rooms, etc., providing a concrete addition to notions learned in class. The visits are also an opportunity to exchange directly with professionals through the presentation of various engineering jobs, recruitment opportunities and work experience and to see examples of the careers of former ESTACA graduates working in these companies.

This year, site visits were offered to 3rd and 4th-year students from both ESTACA campus, thanks to the support from our partner companies and the investment of their teams organising these events.

Heartfelt thanks to them all!

An ESTACKATHON to create a “use case” and a prototype of a vehicle of the future

ESTACKATHON Winner Prototype

This year, SiERA, ESTACA’s electronics and robotics association, organised the first ESTACKATHON open to all students. The goal: to create a “use case” and a prototype of a vehicle of the future from a miniature (about 10 cm), Arduino electronic cards, motors and sensors.

Four teams of students from 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th years competed over four hours, drawing on their programming skills. They had access to the School’s FabLab and worked in project mode supervised by a SiERA member.

The FabLab manager was also available to help students use the various tools (welding units for electronic circuits, electronic prototyping kits, printer circuit engravers, oscilloscopes, etc.). The winning team designed a car with an obstacle-avoidance system.

Martin Pâques, 4th-year student and president of SiERA spoke about the ESTACKATHON: "Personally, I have participated in several hackathons and I wanted to share my experience in ESTACA. It was a real satisfaction to see other students appreciate the experience as much as I did!

SiERA made the most of this event to promote programming and remove the stereotypes associated with this discipline. We hope that this first hackathon will open the door to new projects in cooperation with ESTACA’s partner companies."

Theme 2018: The Comfort of Users in Autonomous Cars

As part of the EIW 2018 (ESTACA International Week) International Meetings were held in Laval from March 19th to the 23rd between ESTACA and its foreign partners. This year the campus has welcomed fifty representatives of companies and universities from all over the world.

Twenty conferences and workshops were offered from March 21st to the 23rd on the technological and industrial issues of transport and mobility on a worldwide scale. Research professors, PhD students and foreign or French industrialists have exchanged information on the topics of user comfort in autonomous transport, intelligence and connected vehicles, composite materials, air quality, design, etc.

ESTACA students carried out a presentation session of their research as part of the IPARWF/PIRATE projects (Initiation Project for Applied Research in Work Framed). While at the same time, the teachers-researchers of the partner universities presented their work in progress.

During the "teaching days" that was organized on 19th and 20th of March, 45 hours of classes were given in English by nine university speakers to students, on topics such as "autonomous functions in mobility systems" or "engineering system products ".

An International conference with the European House has also been organized for the benefit of engineering students on semester exchanges with foreign universities.

The Ministry of Higher Education has awarded this event with «EHEA Paris 2018» (European Higher Education Area) label on the same year anniversary of the Bologna Process, to institutions that cultivate and promote a European vision of higher education.
