A pioneering spirit and the potential for innovation are part of aeronautical engineers’ DNA, especially those at ISAE-SUPAERO, encouraging us to go ever further. We are convinced that it is possible to transform the aerospace sector in the coming decades to make it a major component of a sustainable society. Space will play an ever greater role in monitoring the state of our planet, and air transport will be decarbonized in order to be able to continue meeting the long-distance transportation needs of future generations with no climate impact.
We have a duty to get to work on this immediately:
• To play our role in the aerospace sector by accepting our responsibility for preparing the future and foreseeing the necessary transformations;
• To meet the expectations of our current and future students and of our co-workers;
• To stay faithful to our history and our motto, “Excellence with Passion”, by training engineers who will be on the cutting edge of the transformations in the aerospace sector.
We have therefore made the commitment to mobilize our educational skills and our scientific expertise to contribute to building sustainable aeronautical and space components, notably to invent the decarbonized air transport of the future. This commitment is laid out in our renewed Sustainable Development strategy:
• Making the Institute a committed player in sustainability for mobility in aviation and in the space sector by training engineers and executives capable of meeting this challenge, and by orienting our research and innovation activities in this direction.
• Giving our future graduates the keys to contribute to the public debate on energy transition and a sustainable society, using a scientific approach and a mastery of complex systems.
• Pursuing the reduction of the carbon footprint left by our activities and our campus. Deploying this strategy will also be an opportunity to bring our community together for an ambitious collective project that is indispensable for the future. Join us and together let us take a lasting commitment to pursuing new horizons!
