What are France Excellence Summer Schools?

France Excellence Summer Schools Program is led by The French Embassy in China and Campus France. It is aimed at students enrolled in a master's degree in a Chinese University, interested in following a PhD in France.

France Excellence Summer Schools (master’s degree level) are taught in English by professors-researchers from French universities of international reputation. The summer schools are made up of guided practical work, training modules to introduction to research, and a first introduction to French language and culture. Taking part to these summer schools must give candidates the opportunity to identify a potential research subject and a thesis supervisor.


Microwaves and Diagnostic for Aerospace Engineering Summer School at a glance :

The France Excellence 2019 Summer School 'Microwaves and Diagnostic for Aerospace Engineering' will take place from 1 to 28 July 2019 in Université de Toulouse, INP-ENSEEIHT (Ecole Nationale d’Electrotechnique, d’Electronique, d’Informatique d’Hydraulique et Télécommunications) de Toulouse.

The LAPLACE (Laboratory for PLAsma and Conversion of Energy) will be involved. The LAPLACE joint research unit of French National Scientific Research Center (CNRS), Institut National Polytechnique of Toulouse and Paul Sabatier University, will support this Summer School. It will allow the students to discover the world of research in aeronautical engineering and space around electrical engineering and electronic systems.

Discover the research in the fields of engineering for aeronautics and space. The “all-in” Summer School MD AE 2019 will offer you high-level courses and mini-projects, fully taught in English, meetings with French, European or international researchers as well as industrials in the context of visits or conferences. During this month, an initiation to research will be offered to the students, through mini projects and personal research projects, allowing them to implement their learning, including that of French leaning.


Course details

Training content

Scientific syllabus

The courses deal with 2 important scientific topics for aeronautical engineering and space : Microwave techniques and Diagnostic of embedded systems.

1. Introduction to microwave techniques :
- Propagation and radiation of electromagnetic wave
- Passive components
- Antennas systems
- Computer aided design for microwave component for aerospace application
- Microwave material interaction

2. Diagnosis and health monitoring of electromechanical systems :

- Degradation and faults in electromechanical systems, static converters, passive components (capacitors and inductors), cables and insulators, mainly for aerospace industry
- Introduction to diagnosis, supervision and health monitoring, principles and examples of existing protections and monitoring solutions
- Introduction to dependability
- Classification of diagnosis approaches : model and signal based diagnosis methods, examples of degradation monitoring and fault detections

3. Other topics

- Initiation to documentary research
- Development of a personal research project

Research projects are proposed in order to apply the theoretical aspects seen during the courses. Practical works and workshops will concern microwave techniques and diagnostics. These projects will give rise to oral presentations, evaluated at the end of the school by a jury composed of teacher-researchers and researchers from our Institutes, in conditions close to the French doctorate scholarship competition.


Cultural syllabus

- Courses of French as a Foreign Language are included in the program (30 hours).

- External activities: Tourist Rally to discover the city of Toulouse, visit of Cité de l'Espace and Aeroscopia museums, visits of Carcassonne, Saint-Emilion and Paris.


The final program will be known beginning of April 2019.
