Everything about the international week

4 - 8 may 2020




Istia-Polytech Angers is the graduate School of Engineering of the University of Angers.

Created in 1993, ISTIA trains engineering students to meet companies’ expectations. Thanks to a strong partnership between the school and companies, students enjoy a thorough knowledge of the working field at each stage of the 5-year programme. A 2-year preparatory programme gives students a scientific, technical and personal background which is fundamental for enrolling in one of the four Master of Engineering degrees:

  1. Industrial Systems: Automation and Computer Engineering
  2. Industrial Systems: Quality, Innovation & Reliability
  3. Engineering and health science : biology and health systems
  4. Civil Engineering, Buildings & Safety

Highly-specialized scientific skills and industrial professional know-how are taught in close partnership with the industrial environment.

  • Teamwork, projects and internships are very important in the curriculum: 13-month internship over 3 years
  • 100% of the students carry out an internship abroad (at least 3 months) and are encouraged to study a semester abroad
  • A number of professional speakers share their experience of the industrial world


In 2019, Istia School of Engineering becomes a member of Polytech Group, number one group of 15 French faculties of engineering. Its name is now Polytech Angers.
