École de l'air
The École de l'Air is a military school and grande école training line officers in the French Air Force. It is located at Salon-de-Provence Air Base in France. In 1922, the École du génie of Versailles, was entrusted with the mission to train all officers and aircrew in aeronautics; the École militaire et d’application de l’Aéronautique was set up in 1925. The officer cadets from the non-commissioned officers' corps and young officers from the École Spéciale Militaire de Saint-Cyr and École Polytechnique attended training at Versailles for two years. For pilots, their training continued at Avord and Cazaux, where they trained in aerial combat and bombing. President Albert Lebrun created the École de l'Air by Presidential decree in 1933; the school's first class began training November 4, 1935. The school's motto, Faire Face is a tribute to Capitaine Georges Guynemer, a World War I fighter ace In 1937, the school moved into still-unfinished buildings in Salon, Bouches-du-Rhône; the outbreak of World War II forced the school to relocate several times from 1939 to 1945, to sites including Bordeaux and Marrakech.
It was not until 1946. The school received the Legion of Honor and the Croix de Guerre from President Vincent Auriol in 1947. Other specialized schools joined the École de l'Air, including the École du commissariat de l'Air, which trains administrative and financial officers, in 1953, the Cours Spécial de l'École de l'Air, which trains exchange cadets from French-speaking African countries, in 1973. In 1969, the École de l'Air began an exchange program with the United States Air Force Academy, for eight cadets per school each year; the school first accepted women in 1976. Since 2008, The École de l'Air proposes two mastères spécialisés courses in aviation safety aircraft airworthiness and aerospace project management in partnership with the École nationale de l'aviation civile and the Institut Supérieur de l'Aéronautique et de l'Espace. In 2015, The École de l'air launched a MOOC titled Compréhension de l’Arme Aérienne on France Université Numérique's platform.

Doctoral degreeThe major fields of study and research at ENSAIT are: Technical textiles, Mechanical engineering Industrial and manufacturing engineering Smart material Textiles Chemistry, Biotechnology in Textiles Clothing Technologies, DesignDuring first year at ENSAIT, students study all the basics of textile technology.
Each year 80 students receive an ENSAIT Master's degree referred-to as diplôme d'ingénieur ENSAIT, around 10 students receive a doctoral degree. The school was founded in Roubaix with municipal funding, it was meant to provide a special studying program for the requirements of the textile industry at Roubaix and France. After 1889, the institution became known as the École d'Arts et Métiers Textiles; because the school was near from the war front, it was closed in some wartime periods, many students and academic staff died in these wars. Nowadays, the ENSAIT has a large parc of machinery. In 1991, the GEMTEX was inaugurated as the first French center with research competence in all textile engineering fields. Entrepreneurship is promoted with GENI-INNOTEX. Since the ENSAIT foundation, the students perpetuate their own traditions and folklore, are members of a student society, they call themselves "AIT". The "BDE" folklore includes traditional clothing, language and legends, related symbolism, ceremonials.
BDE activities are independent of the administration of the school and are run by the students, although the two parts cooperate for organising cultural or sporting events. The ENSAIT has a partnership with more than 300 institutions around the world
ESPCI Paris is an institution of higher education founded in 1882 by the city of Paris, France. It educates undergraduate and graduate students in physics and biology and conducts high-level research in those fields, it is ranked as the first French École d'Ingénieurs in the 2017 Shanghai Ranking. ESPCI Paris is a constituent college of PSL Research University and a founding member of the ParisTech alliance. 5 researchers and alumni from ESPCI Paris have been awarded the Nobel Prize: Pierre and Marie Curie, Marie Curie - second Nobel Prize, Frédéric Joliot-Curie, Pierre-Gilles de Gennes, Georges Charpak. Two thirds of the students enter the School following a competitive examination following at least two years of Classes Préparatoires; the other students are recruited by submitting applications. The School itself is known as Physique-Chimie or PC. ESPCI Paris nurtures relationships with many industrial partners such as Schlumberger, Total, Arkema, Withings, which sponsors groups of students and has research contracts with ESPCI laboratories.
ESPCI Paris has partnerships with L'Oréal and Saint-Gobain for professional recruitment. At the end of the 19th century, following the annexation of Alsace and Lorraine by Germany, France lost the École de Chimie de Mulhouse, at that time the best chemistry school in the country. One of its professors, Charles Lauth, obtained permission from the government in 1878 to create a Grande École. In 1882 the École Supérieure de Chimie Industrielles de la Ville de Paris was established and became ESPCI, its current name, in 1948. Since its foundation, the founders of the school have emphasized pluridisciplinarity. Biology was introduced in 1994. There are no tuition fees at ESPCI. After its establishment, the School became a meeting spot for the best scientists. From 1880 on, Pierre and Jacques Curie started a serie of research on crystal electrical properties that led to the piezoelectricity discovery. In 1897, Marie Curie started her work on uranic rays discovered by Becquerel one year earlier. After numerous experiments in the ESPCI laboratories, she discovered that pitchblende was 4 times more radioactive than uranium or thorium.
In July 1898, the Curies announced the discovery of polonium and in December of the same year that of radium. Pierre and Marie Curie received the Physics Nobel Prize in 1903. After the death of her husband, Marie Curie was granted the Chemistry Nobel Prize in 1911. Many former students have distinguished themselves, amongst which are Georges Claude, founder of Air Liquide, Paul Langevin and inventor and Frédéric Joliot-Curie, founder of the CEA and Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1935 with his wife Irène. In 1976, Pierre-Gilles de Gennes became Director of the School and remained in this position until his retirement in 2002. In 2015, the city of Paris announced a major renovation plan, in order to modernize the buildings and laboratories of the school. Renovation work should last five years; the course of study lasts four years. The two first years give the students a strong basic education in physics and biology; the students can major in chemistry or physico-chemistry. Laboratory research projects are carried out.
During the third year, the students carry out an industrial internship, which lasts from 4 to 6 months. More than 50% of the students do their internship abroad, in European countries, the United-States, China, Australia, or other countries. During the fourth year, the students can either begin doctoral studies or do a masters abroad or in France. In 2002 a masters program in bioengineering was created; the quality of the education at ESPCI enables its students to work in any industrial sector in Research and Development. The primary mode of admission is a competitive examination open to candidates enrolled in the PC section of the Preparatory Classes to the Grandes écoles; the examinations are the same as for the Ecole Polytechnique but the components are weighted differently. Candidates to the competitive examination must have an equivalent diploma, they must be aged between 22 on 1 January of the examination year. Foreign candidates can attempt this examination three times, it is possible for students from the MP section, PSI section, BCPST section of the preparatory classes or having completed 2 or 3 years of physics or chemistry in a French university to apply for ESPCI Paris.
Admission is reserved to first class honours students selected according to their academic results.
