Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Mécanique et Aérotechnique (ENSMA), France

Founded in Poitiers in 1948, ENSMA has been located since 1993 next to the site of Futuroscope. In fifty years, our school has acquired a reputation for excellence by training more than 4500 high level engineers, supported by a world famous research programme developed through multiple partnerships with large companies, which, in addition, hire many of our graduate students.

The academic training given at ENSMA enables the young graduate engineers to choose jobs in engineering design departments, research and development mainly in the aeronautical and space industries, and more generally in the ground transportation, mechanics and energy industries.

The curriculum is extensive, covering fields such as: fluid and structure mechanics, aerodynamics, energy, thermal science and propulsion, materials and industrial computer science. The school can thus live up to the companies’ expectations in terms of reactivity and adaptation abilities.

Thanks to long standing close industrial relations and strong connections with prestigious schools and universities in France, in Europe and throughout the world, our school is ready to take up the big challenges of the next decades in terms of innovation and technological changes and train the engineers of the future who will be able to take responsibilities and to bring performance to the companies of tomorrow.

The role of ENSMA in the PERSEUS project will be to participate actively in WP2 and WP8.
