Supméca (Institut Supérieur de Mécanique) is a French mechanical engineering school. The school is an active member of the Polyméca network and part of the ENSI (Ecole Nationale Superieure d'Ingenieur) school group. Created in 1948, as Institut Supérieur des Matériaux et de la Construction Mécanique (ISMCM), on the initiative of the Mechanical Industries Federation and the National Education Ministry, Supmeca is a public school specialising in research and science education.


Supmeca has two facilities, one in Saint-Ouen, Paris, founded in 1956, and one in Toulon, founded 1994. Graduates receive the national engineering degree. Admission to the university requires a pass in a competitive entrance exam, for which students complete two years of post-secondary education.


The Supmeca engineering syllabus combines theoretical and practical components, with students completing 52 weeks' intern experience in industry during the course. Courses include economic, social science, and humanities components, with all students studying two foreign languages (including English). The school maintains numerous partnerships with universities in France and around the world, allowing students to spend a third year studying abroad.

Third year students specialize in areas including materials and processes, production systems, mechatronics, structures and mechanical assemblies, and mechanical systems design.
