About Icam

Icam, engineering schools in France and worldwide


Icam trains generalists or multidisciplinary engineers. Icam engineers develop their versatility by investing heavily in a wide range of industrial sciences. They are able to combine theoretical knowledge with practical know-how. They use systemic approaches that enable them to understand and adapt to different business contexts. 

Founded in 1898 by industrial leaders in the North of France, Icam currently has 6 campuses in France, 3 in Africa, 1 in India and 1 in Brazil. Its mission: to train competent men and women, future players in the global stage.  

Icam insists on personal development that operates through the holistic learning of a profession: the studies engage the different dimensions that define a person, using the scientific and technical curriculum as an opportunity for a complete human-centered formation. 

Rooted in the business world, Icam also wants to train entrepreneurs, open to family and social responsibilities and citizenship, who will dare to take initiatives and create wealth and jobs. 

Icam also wants to train men and women who are curious about the world, concerned with the common good, united in a collective and common quest and research. In today’s world, connecting people takes on an international dimension. Opening up to foreign countries is a professional imperative and remains more than ever an issue for human-centered training. Icam considers that meeting men and women from other cultures is an opportunity and an invitation to dialogue.
