Our ambition is to graduate aeronautical, automotive, space, maritime and railway engineers who are quickly operationals and know how to adapt to tomorrow’s technical and technological evolutions.
Our Engineer program is teached only in french.
Reduction in the weight of aircraft, reduction in polluting emissions, increase in aircraft capacity, development and integration of electrical commands: innovation is constant in the aeronautical sector, to reconcile economic and technical performance, in complete security. Being an engineer in aeronautics means working on the design and operation of aircraft (aeroplanes, helicopters, balloons), and embedded systems. This might mean the technical conduct of the development programme, carrying out tests on the ground or in flight, developing production methods, optimising quality processes, or prospecting and negotiating contracts.
Equipment suppliers and large manufacturers need engineers for producing new products, new technologies and new manufacturing processes, and also for performing tests, organising production and researching the market.
Railway and Guided-transport Engineer
High-speed trains, trams, automatic subway trains – there is constant innovation in the field of guided transport and French know-how is exported throughout the world. Manufacturers and carriers are looking for engineers to develop new vehicles, equipment or services, to shape innovations, monitor manufacturing and maintenance, analyse the feasibility of international contracts, etc. ESTACA is one of the only schools in France offering training specifically dedicated to guided transport.
The French and European space programs are economically and strategically important for the future: the development of access to space, with applications such as Earth observation or telecommunications, activities related to research in a zero-gravity environment, the presence of man in space, the continuation of development of the large families of satellites such as Spot, development of mini and micro-satellites, preparation of various interplanetary probes and the missions to Mars, all of these are subjects that are currently being developed. Becoming an engineer in the space sector means working on the construction of launchers, spacecraft (satellites, probes, shuttles, orbital stations) and thrusters, and also taking part in the launch and operation of satellites.
Diversification and energy management, innovative propulsion systems, comfort, air quality, digitalisation, intelligent and autonomous ships, pollution control, supply chains: the shipping industry is constantly changing and there are many areas for development. In all these areas, engineers play an essential role in facing the many challenges: they conduct ambitious projects in both design and production, organize and lead teams, develop surface and underwater vehicles of all sizes, and help to improve the environmental impact. The new shipping course meets a real need for expertise from companies in this sector.
