Dual degree with ISAE-Supaero (Higher Institute of Aeronautics and Space Engineering)

Sciences Po has partnered with ISAE-SUPAERO, a higher education institution delivering top-level aerospace engineering programmes, to offer a dual Master’s degree programme.

The aim of this programme is to give Supaero engineering students and Sciences Po students the means to acquire dual expertise that will be recognised on the labour market. 

Programme

The dual degree programme takes three years. For Sciences Po students, it is organised as follows:

  • The first year takes place at Sciences Po. Students complete the courses for the first-year curriculum of their chosen Master’s programme.
  • The second and third years take place at Supaero in Toulouse. In the third year, students specialise and complete a final internship.

Once they have completed the courses at both institutions and satisfied all course requirements, students are awarded a Sciences Po Master’s degree and a Master’s level engineering degree from ISAE-Supaero.

Graduate destinations

This dual degree is designed for students who want to acquire expertise in the aviation and aerospace industries and go on to work for public organisations (e.g., the European Space Agency or CNES, the French space agency) or private organisations (consulting firms, companies, financial institutions, audit, etc.); participate in aeronautics and aerospace research programmes; or manage large-scale industrial projects in various fields of application and in international, multicultural environments.
