Icam offers 3 general engineering courses, on 7 campuses in France and 6 around the world (Ecuador, Brazil, Cameroon, Congo, India, DRC). It encourages international study semesters, on its campuses but also with its partners: about fifty on all continents. Teaching at the Icam is based on very strong humanist values, to train engineers who are open, aware, committed and active in their lives.
Icam opens its doors to a wide variety of profiles: young people wishing to become engineers, employees in evolution, but also students moving towards technical diplomas (CAP/BEP, Bac Pro). Production schools, in particular, welcome young people who have dropped out of school, to support them and train them in trades where labour needs are high. All these audiences evolve together on Icam campuses!
Icam offers you 6 possibilities to study in France, in the North, West, South-West and Paris region. Each Icam site has a residence, where it is possible to live and experience “living together” as Icam sees it: community life, conviviality, mutual aid, coworking areas… The digital campus also provides access to all the resources essential for courses and group work, everywhere and all the time.
Icam has 5 international campuses in countries with high development potential. They train young people “in their country and for their country”. Exchanges are organized between Icam sites for semesters of study, which are also possible with other partner universities. Many double degree agreements exist, to be trained both at Icam and in the world. With, always, a strong commitment: openness to others and their culture.
Icam is historically very close to the companies, which regularly intervene in the life of the school: juries, courses, visits, conferences, meetings, offers of internships, apprenticeships and employment contracts… Some companies also collaborate with the Icam to implement professional training in relation to their recruitment needs. Icam also welcomes employees who wish to advance in their careers by becoming engineers.
Many doctoral students and lecturer-researchers conduct their research on Icam campuses. Each year, they produce scientific publications and collaborate with prestigious research laboratories in France and around the world. Very close to the problems of companies, their research aims to design innovative solutions in the fields of energy, the societal and technological transition of companies, as well as innovative structures and materials.
