Icam, School of Engineering

Founded in 1898 by the Society of Jesus, Icam remains true to its Jesuit heritage and to the vision of the founder of the Society of Jesus, St. Ignatius of Loyola. Jesuit education strives to seek the truth and to form each student into a whole person of solidarity who will take responsibility for the real world. Our students are asked to have an educated awareness of society and culture, a sense of being interrelated and interconnected, and a commitment to act for the rights of others.

Icam, Grande Ecole française, delivers Engineering Degrees (Master level) and offers trainings in engineering : lectures and qualifications, internships in our labs in R&D projects (for short or long periods), research activities, cooperative programs. We offer students an educational environment unmatched for its diversity of thought and experience, aiming at encouraging a personal development. Our lectures are organized on a human scale, permitting students to benefit from small groups, leading to a richer and fuller exchange with other students and staff members. Our full time teaching staff ensures the role of following and guiding students throughout the year, throughout their studies and projects. Graduate engineers can benefit from the highly active alumni network, which will allow the alumni to maintain their relations with their university and provide them with information on local or international events and changes throughout their careers.

Icam is accredited by CTI, Commission des Titres d'Ingénieur, and is a member of CGE, Conférence des Grandes Ecoles.

Preparing people to lead their own projects

A commitment to excellence, Icam’s curriculum and skills to achieve new ideas, better solutions and vital answers within companies and everyday life is Icam’s goal.

International students can choose to complete one or more semesters, enabling the student to experience a French perspective of engineering and as a supplement to your studies.  Undertaking a two year programme will allow you to obtain a double degree, when applicable. Our primary goal is to provide you with an intense educational experience that is infused with the flavors and excitement of living in one of our universities in France.  Our school of engineering will lead you along the way through enriching curricula, exciting study trips, eye-opening service projects, and experiential learning through internships.

The Residence Life at Icam is committed to the housing and education of a diverse community of people.  Our mission emerges from our desire to develop students as Vital, Engaging and Open-Minded individuals devoted to encouraging dignity in all people.

We believe that living on campus is an integral part of the educational experience and promotes student success.
