Hisis - The illustrious history of the Institute

Discover the illustrious history of the Institute thanks to our large collection of digitized archival documents. The beginning of an ambitious, constantly evolving project, Hisis site is now available for consultation.

Through Hisis, learn about the many transformations that ISAE has undergone, testifying to the Institute’s capacity to continually adapt to technical and technological progress and its important contribution to the remarkable growth of the global aerospace industry.

The site will address a wide range of topics related to changes that have occurred over more than one century: the creation of two schools in Paris and their subsequent transfer to Toulouse, the evolution in buildings, organization, teaching and research activities, faculty, campus life, student associations and clubs, and scientific facilities, among others.

The rich heritage of ISAE has helped to make the Institute what it is today: a world leader in higher education and research in aerospace engineering.

We would love to hear from you !

The Library needs and welcomes your help to advance the preservation and valorization of the Institute’s heritage.
We are interested in viewing any testimonials or documents related to the history of ISAE (photographs, courses, reports, brochures, posters, films, etc.)
