ISAE New Aquitaine Alliance

Four engineering schools of the ISAE Group have decided to join forces to build “ISAE Nouvelle-Aquitaine”, an ambitious alliance to put aeronautical and space excellence at the service of future mobility.


With four member or partner schools located in New Aquitaine, the ISAE Group wishes to structure its presence in the region. The “ISAE Nouvelle-Aquitaine” Alliance, coordinated by ISAE-ENSMA, should enable its members to intensify the implementation of joint projects.

In February 2020, the ISAE Group welcomed two new partner schools, ELISA Aerospace and EIGSI La Rochelle-Casablanca. With the arrival of these two schools of engineering, New Aquitaine now has four engineering schools that are members or partners of the ISAE Group: ISAE-ENSMA in Poitiers, ESTIA in Bidart, ELISA Aerospace in Bordeaux and EIGSI in La Rochelle.

This “Alliance of projects” will enable the schools to continue to develop joint actions on a regional scale, both in terms of training and research. The Alliance has already positioned itself on the “Usine du Futur” and “Ferrocampus®” projects led by the New Aquitaine Region. In addition, it will ensure that the Group is represented in regional discussion forums. The Alliance must also become the privileged interlocutor of the economic and institutional actors of the territory. Roland Fortunier, Director of ISAE-ENSMA, points out that “the Group’s engineering schools in New Aquitaine today represent some 3,000 students, as well as a research powerhouse, with a strong impact on economic activity.

Some actions :

– coordination of the Bachelor programs,
– joint organisation of career fairs,
– monthly thematic conferences,
– student exchanges.
