All IRT Saint Exupery PhD students benefit from its specific private-public environment. In particular, their academic and industrial advisors ensure the highest scientific standards in parallel with the development of their awareness to the needs of industry, providing opportunities to expand their professional network.
There are currently 31 PhD students, 21 post-docs researchers and 34 PhD alumni. These PhD activities are or have been developed in collaboration with around 30 laboratories, mainly located in Toulouse and Bordeaux, but also in Albi, Limoges, Montpellier, Sophia Antipolis, Grenoble, Poitiers, Caen, Saclay, Amiens, Arras and abroad in Montréal or the USA.
With the AIDA program (Aerospace Industry PhD Acculturation), IRT Saint Exupéry offers PhD students to visit 2 or 3 Aerospace companies per year. The aim is to make the PhD students better know jobs and careers in such companies.
Usually, the visit is composed of:
This event usually takes place in the middle of the year and attracts around 150 attendees, with a significant participation of academic or industrial IRT members.
IRT Saint Exupéry PhD students present their work with various communication ways:
