With its extensive range of over 33 degree and educational programs, backed by research-driven teaching and close collaboration with industry, ISAE-SUPAERO answers since 1909 the constantly evolving needs of the aerospace sector. ISAE-SUPAERO research activities have helped to make the school an international leader not only in terms of its aerospace engineering program but also its post-graduate programs including its masters (MSc) and 6 doctoral programs in engineering sciences. Interdisciplinary approach is combined with the most advanced research on scientific knowledge, models, and methodological approaches. In total, ISAE-SUPAERO host over 1700 students of 45 nationalities (30 % international students), among them are 1100 engineering students, 400 students in Masters and Advanced  Master’s programs and 225  doctoral students  (about 32 % international).

Role in MAIA

The research group is guided by Prof. Mickael Causse, specialist of human factors and neuroergonomics at ISAE-SUPAERO (Toulouse, France). The institute has its own Doctorate School in Aerospace Engineering. This group will provide specific knowledge in the study of mental workload and stress/emotions on task performance but also provide a specific knowledge on combinatorial optimization methods, uncertainty modelling, resource constrained project scheduling, skill-oriented optimal design of production lines analysis of age impact on cognitive capacities with no reference to assembly tasks.
