ISTIA 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


Since 2016, Istia School of Engineering is part of the Polytech Group as an associated faculty of the network of French universities.
