Aix-en-provence campus

campus aix

Located close the historical heart of Aix-en-Provence, the campus has a strong regional anchor in two strategic industrial sectors: aeronautics and the nuclear and renewable energies. Close relations have been established with leading players, such as Airbus Helicopters and the SAFE competitiveness cluster for the aeronautics industry, and CEA Cadarache, the Capenergie competitiveness cluster for energy.

A centre of excellence in Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur

The campus enjoys a privileged location at the heart of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region, which represents the third largest research potential in France and hosts 11 competitiveness clusters. Its geographical location promotes expanding international exchanges with the Mediterranean Basin: Morocco, Tunisia, Spain and others.

campus aix hallesResearch activities are based on the institution’s two laboratories: LSIS-INSM (Laboratory of information and systems sciences – Digital engineering of mechanical systems) and MSMP (Laboratory of mechanics, surfaces, materials and processes). They contribute to innovation in several areas: production systems design, digital engineering, tribology and surface treatment and casting. The campus also has a technology platform: Inovsys, dedicated to product and prototype design.

A message from the Director

"The Aix-en-Provence campus has positioned itself as the key partner of several strategic industry sectors. This emphasis on the aeronautics, energy and digital fields irrigates our training courses to provide the necessary skills to businesses. In 2017, at the request of the EDF Group, we intend to launch a Specialised Engineering qualification in electrical systems. Today, the General Engineering training represents half of our activity, while the other curriculums are growing in strength. We want to increase the attractiveness of the campus through a vast infrastructure modernisation project. It provides for the creation of a large collaborative work area for promoting technological innovation and entrepreneurship. " Philippe Collot, Aix-en-Provence Campus Director.
