Why choose this program?

Icam Toulouse campus organizes a new summer program this year, to enable international students to experience the French pedagogical and cultural dimensions of our Engineering School.

Icam Toulouse Campus will welcome international students for a brand new summer program from June 17 to 30, 2023.
