Themes of joint activities, condition for utilising the results achieved as well as arrangements for specific visits and exchanges of Faculty members and researchers shall be defined on case by case specific agreement.
The Institut Supérieur de l'Aéronautique et de l'Espace (ISAE-SUPAERO), is one of the most prestigious and selective in France. It was the world's first dedicated aerospace engineering school and is considered to be one of the best in Europe in that field. SUPAERO offers a broad education in engineering, focused mainly on those subjects that are of interest in the air or space industry, but also touching areas that may find applications in other fields as well. As a matter of fact, more than half of the students will end up working outside the aerospace industry. In 2007, SUPAERO was grouped together with ENSICA to form a new aeronautical school: Institut supérieur de l'aéronautique et de l'espace (ISAE). SUPAERO offers a three-year curriculum and a master's program. Since its founding in 1909 SUPAERO has produced more than 11,000 graduates; some of them have achieved fame in their field, including: Henri Coandă, the discoverer of the Coanda effect; Henri Ziegler, father of the Airbus program; Frédéric d'Allest, first chairman of Arianespace; and Jean-François Clervoy (class of 1983), astronaut. international visibility of SUPAERO and ENSICA (which both depend from the French Ministry of Defense), by sharing their faculty and experimental means.
