Toulouse campus


The creation of the Icam dates back to 1898 with the brothers-in-law Mr. Féron and Mr. Vrau who decided to set up an engineering school. They enlisted the help of the Jesuit community to found this project in Lille. A few years later, the state appealed to schools to increase the number of trained engineers. To keep promotions on a human scale, the Jesuits decided to open other schools in France. Thus they opened several sites including the Icam site in Toulouse in 1993.

The number of students on the site and collaborators present to train them has increased considerably since the creation of the site. So a substantial real estate project was signed to renovate the site and thus have new buildings.

The Icam site in Toulouse is a member of Toulouse Tech, a group of engineering and scientific schools, within the Federal University of Toulouse Midi Pyrénées.

Student life

On the Toulouse campus, the student association life is very diversified. It is composed of several units, supervised by the BDE, Student Office.It is the link between the management and all the students, manages the associations and organizes the biggest events of the year such as the Christmas dinner, the 12H of Icam, the ski weekend, theme evenings and many others! It is also there to bring new ideas, new projects to improve pedagogy and life within the Icam.

  • The sports centre is composed of several associations, including the BDS, Bureau des Sports. It is a pillar association, which organizes training and university championships ( Our team won the famous rowing race, the Garona Cup, this year!). Alpicam, a mountain hiking association, Gliss’Icam, for sliding fans, E-sportIcam for video game and online tournament fans, Icam’Voile to participate in InterIcam cruises, Edhec cruises and other outings as well as Cocor’Icam, the number one association of our students’ enthusiastic supporters are also part of the sports centre.
  • The engineering department is during our student projects, it includes associations such as Icam Flight, for aeronautics, Ica’Méca for DIYers (or not!), Robot’Icam, which offers the opportunity to participate in national student competitions and the Fablab and Space’Icam for astronomy and space lovers.
  • The BDSpi, Office of Spirituality, is part of the opening pole. It offers spiritual animation through activities that touch all types of sensibilities, religious or spiritual. All students are welcome! Within this same pole, the International Club offers an opening towards foreign countries and integrates students in exchange on campus, Environ’Icam participates in the renewal of the site in terms of sustainable development and raises awareness among students and Concept’Icam is the Junior-Enterprise (a Junior Entreprise is an association under the 1901 law which proposes to meet real professional needs with the help of students).
  • Icam’Usique is an association of passionate people who learn or share their knowledge in the musical field. Its members also host most of our student events! Icam’Edia offers students the opportunity to learn about photography, participate in photo outings and immortalize our events. These two associations make up the art centre of the Toulouse site.

Finally, the catering division arrives. The Toulouse site has a bar managed and run by students, which brings together all students and employees for events. It is in collaboration with Cuisine-Toi, which offers students the opportunity to learn new recipes, with Brasser’Icam, which creates its own beer cuvée and Vin Coeur, the oenology association.

Thus, the Toulouse site is full of associations, all run by students. They also provide an opportunity to learn, meet students from other classes and grow. And there is something for everyone!
