EPFL students

EPFL students who are in their 1st year of the Master’s degree in Mechanical engineering may apply to ISAE-SUPAERO to pursue the Ingénieur ISAE-SUPAERO program. If admitted, they begin the double degree program after validating the 1st year of the Master’s degree at EPFL.

ISAE-SUPAERO students

ISAE-SUPAERO students who are in their 2nd year of the Ingénieur ISAE-SUPAERO program and who have excellent academic records may apply for the following EPFL Master’s degree programs:

  • Master in Mechanical engineering
  • Master in Electrical and electronic engineering
  • Master in Computational science and engineering

  • 3rd semester: courses at ISAE-SUPAERO
  • 4th semester: internship in the industry
  • 5th semester: courses at ISAE-SUPAERO
  • 6th semester: individual end-of-study project in a research laboratory (SFE, Master’s thesis)
    A total of 120 ECTS credits are obtained at ISAE-SUPAERO

ISAE-SUPAERO students

A training path of 180 ECTS is offered within this double degree program at EPFL:

  • Validation of the first two years of the Ingénieur ISAE-SUPAERO course of study (Master 1, 60 ECTS)
  • Internship in the industry (from eight weeks to six months)
  • Master 2 (four semesters) at EPFL: courses and Master’s thesis in a research laboratory (minimum four months)
    A total of 120 ECTS credits are obtained at EPFL

End-of-study project or Master’s thesis

The academic supervisors of each institution must approve the subject of the end-of-study project or Master’s thesis. The students submit a written report and perform an oral defense in French or in English. The defense takes place at the host institution. One or more members of the home institution may be part of the academic committee responsible for evaluating the project (in situ or by video conference).

EPFL students

In order to be admitted to the Ingénieur ISAE-SUPAERO training program, EPFL students must have at least a B2 level in French.

In order to obtain the Ingénieur ISAE-SUPAERO degree, EPFL students must pass the TOEFL test, by the end of their stay at the latest, paper-based (PBT) or internet-based (IBT) format, and obtain a minimum overall score of 580 (PBT) or 92/100 (IBT).

ISAE-SUPAERO students

At EPFL a level of C1 in English is highly recommended. However, validation of this level by an official test is not required.

Once the program participants have met the graduation requirements of each of the partner institutions, they receive two degrees:

  • EPFL Master of Science
  • Ingénieur ISAE-SUPAERO degree

The award of the EPFL Master’s degree implies the award of the Ingénieur ISAE-SUPAERO degree and vice versa.

General information about costs related to double degrees is available on the Double degrees, joint Master’s and 1:1 Master’s page.
