Icam, School of Engineering


Recommended Posts

Founded in 1898 by the Society of Jesus, Icam remains true to its Jesuit heritage and to the vision of the founder of the Society of Jesus, St. Ignatius of Loyola. Jesuit education strives to seek the truth and to form each student into a whole person of solidarity who will take responsibility for the real world. Our students are asked to have an educated awareness of society and culture, a sense of being interrelated and interconnected, and a commitment to act for the rights of others.

Icam, Grande Ecole française, delivers Engineering Degrees (Master level) and offers trainings in engineering : lectures and qualifications, internships in our labs in R&D projects (for short or long periods), research activities, cooperative programs. We offer students an educational environment unmatched for its diversity of thought and experience, aiming at encouraging a personal development. Our lectures are organized on a human scale, permitting students to benefit from small groups, leading to a richer and fuller exchange with other students and staff members. Our full time teaching staff ensures the role of following and guiding students throughout the year, throughout their studies and projects. Graduate engineers can benefit from the highly active alumni network, which will allow the alumni to maintain their relations with their university and provide them with information on local or international events and changes throughout their careers.

A commitment to excellence, Icam’s curriculum and skills to achieve new ideas, better solutions and vital answers within companies and everyday life is Icam’s goal.

Our approach to teaching and study programs is inspired by the life and work of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuit movement in the 16th century. This translates as a focus on learning from contact with real-life situations, continuously reviewing and analyzing experiences, and caring for other people, whatever their background. Underlining the importance of teamwork, ethics and social involvement is also key to professional and personal development.

Icam is in the business of education and we recruit our students in the same way that a company hires its employeesn through a careful selection and interviewing process. Icam has also developed a range of business services that reflects the needs of the real economy. We expect leadership and a high level of performance from staff and students alike.

By sharing buildings, equipment and teachers with people from others programs on their campus, our students learn at first hand about the importance of working with others. For pat of their studies, they will not only be working alongside fellow students, but also technicians and machine operators who are combining Icam courses with jobs in industry. the ability to mix with people from different social, cultural and professional backgrounds – and a willingness to help others in their work – is particularly valued bu employers.

By opening new campuses in Africa and India, Icam is able to play its part in providing new opportunities for people in emerging economies. However, this is not just a one-way process. Our presence in these countries is also a chance to see the world from a different point of view and to create new sources of innovation – particularly in the area of sustainable development, a major challenge for our planet. All of these opportunities can lead to competitive advantage.

As an educational establishment run on business lines, we are committed to ensuring every student experiences our vision. The founding inspiration behind Icam has, from the outset, led to optimising our institutional ecology approach which encourages students to come to terms with the different priorities between individual progress and the construction of a responsible world.

They are the foundation on which our actions are based and which guide our relationships. They are a sign of the priority we give to the human dimension when successfully pursuing the goal of shared economic development in the service for the benefit of all.

apable of extending and firmly anchoring this project in several regions, several countries and several industries. The richness that originates from our global and multiple locations reflects our ambition to be as close as possible to each individual, respecting differences and establishing local roots.

Many of whom understand each day, that above and beyond essential scientific skills, it is personal framework and the meaning of actions that forge human quality. and in doing so, are thinking about us and showing interest in us.

The Icam Group’s raison d’être is to implement this holistic educational project. We are traditionally open to all those who wish to associate their talents and energies with our educational projects in relationships which are based upon generosity and trust.

Icam Lille campus was the first one to be founded in 1898. Two industrialists from the north part of France were the founding fathers of the school of engineering. They were also very sensitive to providing training courses in continuing education along with the Master degree of engineering. This is the reason why Icam is still today ensuring a real social promotion which is part of its Ethics.

The idea of providing an engineer training through apprenticeship was implemented in Lille in the early 1990’s and was then developped on the campuses of Toulouse, La Roche-sur-Yon and Vannes.

The campus is located at a 15-minute walk from Lille city centre and is embedded in the Catholic University of Lille (over 20 000 students).
