With 6 campuses in Toulouse and 1 in Tarbes and 21 research laboratories, INP Toulouse offers you the opportunity to study and do research at a dynamic and multidisciplinary university of more than 6000 students. We are currently developing our links with universities and research organisations all over the world. For the moment, we have an extensive range of European and international cooperation programmes and projects with more than 25 countries. Multicultural campuses thanks to varied courses At INP Toulouse, you can take advantage of a unique opportunity to study natural and engineering sciences of the highest standards and, at the same time, discover the diversity of French culture and the French-speaking environment.
Live and study on dynamic campuses! Offering
University degrees - Engineering degrees with the grade of Master at our “Grandes Ecoles” * - Master’s degrees - International Masters in English in the following fields: • The Agrofoodchain • Fluids Engineering for Industrial Processes • Electrical Engineering and Electrical Systems • Electronic systems for embedded applications and communications - PhD degrees
More than 100 students associations with a wide choice of activities: sports, theatre, music, humanitarian rallies, etc.
* At the end of the secondary education and after 2 years of dedicated preparatory classes, the selection criteria of Grandes Écoles rest mainly on competitive written and oral exams.
Multimedia libraries and resources You will have access to a wide range of educational resources: - 11.000 electronic resources: periodicals, books and databases in all INP fields http://erasme.inp-toulouse.fr - Free access to INP theses on line http://ethesis.inp-toulouse.fr - Free access to all Midi-Pyrénées higher education libraries - OATAO: open access repository assembling the output of Toulou-
se engineering researchers, which makes it freely available on the web. It can include articles, book chapters, reports, conference papers, etc. Depositing research papers in institutional repositories like OATAO is complementary to traditional academic publishing and communication processes. Institutional repositories increase the visibility of research and help to maximise its impact. http://oatao.univ-toulouse.fr/

s on 4 international Master degree courses AGROFOOD CHAIN (all courses in English)
8 higher education and research institutions in the Toulouse area, federated in the Toulouse AgriCampus consortium, jointly offer the Agrofood Chain Masterâ€™s programme. The objective of this 2-year multidisciplinary programme is to create awareness of the scientific, social and economic realities of the modern Agrofood industry and to provide scientific and practical training in an international context.
Fluids Engineering for Industrial Processes (50% in French- 50% in English)
Applications are related to fluid flows in petroleum and chemical engineering and energy transformation. Lectures concentrate on physics and the modelling of transport phenomena in multiphase flows: bubbles, drops, granular media, emulsions and foams. Practical applications complement advanced courses on turbulence, coupling chemical reactions and also flows, heat and mass transfer. Students will be trained to work with Computational Fluid Dynamics tools such as commercial codes but also research and industrial software.
Electrical Engineering Systems (50% in French- 50% in English)
This Masterâ€™s degree course focuses on the Optimised Conversion of Electrical Energy. The programme deals with different constituting elements of the energy conversion chain and with multi-scale advanced design of electrical systems. It proposes a systems approach with different energy sources like static or electromechanical conversion structures and appropriate associated controls. The course is supplemented by permanent links with the job market. For their final study project, students can do the work placement in the workplace or in research and development laboratories.
Electronic systems for embedded applications and communications (50% in French- 50% in English)
This training course targets the field of electronic systems for embedded applications and Communications. The course focus on the design of integrated RF circuits, Antennas and digital signal processing and images. Course content provides a basic background in such areas as signal theory and processiong, electromagnetics, circuit theory and is based on project-oriented learning. Finally, the contact with industry and the research world and the professionnalization of Lessons are delivered within 24 months of training, since students are required to work in the research laboratories of our industrial partners and will be able to do interships in companies or in R&D laboratories.
INP Toulouse : a scientific expertise recognised all over the world INP Toulouse benefits from a specific technological environment composed of 4 international renowned competitive clusters: “Aerospace Valley”: Aeronautics, space and embedded systems ”Cancer bio-santé”: Cancer prevention (nutrition, health-promoting food and food safety), treatment and patient management. ”Agrimip Innovation”: Traceability and safety in the Agrofood chain “Pôle Eau”: Location, extraction, the rational use and management of water, and wastewater treatment
Research at INP Toulouse is based on 3 axes :
Teaching contents closely related to research skills Our 21 laboratories, recognised by national research organisations, are located at the heart of our campuses. In this way, our students have access to high level courses supported by research innovations.
Research built on scientific cooperation
Our laboratories, with an international reputation, offer research training and cooperative research associated with other universities in Toulouse, and also with national and international research centres; 2 are European Associated and 2 are International Associated Labs.
Technology transfer: a priority
Many industrial partners support research and our laboratories are fitted out with state of the art technical equipment. We focus on improving knowledge through industrial applications and technological transfer. - 10 Million Euros are devoted to collaborative sponsored research contracts per year - creation of SME’s - licensing policy - about 120 French patents filed by INP or industrial partners, - 40 INP international patents - 16 R&D projects carried out under the Sixth framework program with 3,6 million Euros of financial support from the European Commission.
