What is ISAT




The Institute of Automotive and Transport Engineering (ISAT) in Nevers (France) is a state-run school committed to the comprehensive training of engineers, with a particular interest in the automotive sector. Download our brochure in English !



Our programme is EUR-ACE accredited (European quality label for engineering degree programmes at Bachelor & Master level)



The main aim of ISAT is to cover the whole range of jobs and skills related to the automotive and transport industries, with a strong expertise in mechanical, electrical engineering and energetics from design to production: R &D, design & development, industrialisation, manufacturing, quality, purchasing, embedded electronics...)


Based on sound scientific and technological foundations, the training of our students during the 5-year programme (Master's Degree) is extended and strengthened by long periods of work experience and placements with various companies.


With the Formula-1-circuit "Magny-Cours" nearby, ISAT students are able to experience first-hand leading automotive technology that serves an educational purpose and also a recreational one.


ISAT is also committed to developing research within its  laboratories "DRIVE" research department in vehicle engineering for the environment (composite materials, vibration & acoustics, energy, embedded electronics), as well as in its centre for technology transfer : "Welience ", located on the Formula-1-circuit.


The facilities comprise a 11000 m2 campus with 5000 m2 for teaching and 3000 m2 dedicated to student life, computer labs (Office, CAD, and high-speed prototyping) and specific equipments: engine test beds, vibration/noise measuring chamber, multi-axis testing machines, scanning electronic microscope, vehicle dynamometer, National Instrument acquisition hardware & software, machining centre, CATIA workstation...




Fundamental Sciences: Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, IT

Technology: Mechanical Design and Construction, Industrial Production Management

Automotive Mechanics and Energy: Vehicle Dynamics, Crash Simulation, Propulsion (Heat and Hybrid Engines)

Management and Company Life: Management, Human Resources, Law, Communication

Sports: 2 hours of sports each week

''My name is Alina Murariu and I am currently a Master Meeting programme student at ISAT. I came here from the Polytechnic University of Bucharest to do my second year of masters. After I got my engineering degree in aerospace structures, I decided I wanted to focus more on materials resistance and composite materials. The master I chose in Romania holds an Erasmus agreement with ISAT that offered me the chance to come here in my second year of studies and get a double diploma. I found it to be a great opportunity to experience another culture and also develop my French language skills. The thing that I like most about this programme is that it offers a great deal of hands-on, practical experience. During the second semester, I have been interning at ISAT laboratory (DRIVE) where I carry out research concerning assemblies of composite materials. I am in charge of all the experimental process: manufacturing the test pieces and the assemblies, testing the specimens in three-point and four-point bending and analyzing the results in order to determine the best solution. I really enjoy this opportunity and I think all the knowledge I acquired here will be of great use for a future job, hopefully in France.''
