From 1929, the beginning of its construction, until 1945, it had a chequered history, marked by the second world war. The air raids caused such damage to the college that, in 1945, new students were temporarily accommodated at Lanvéoc-Poulmic, on the other side of the bay of Brest, in the buildings of a Fleet Air Arm base.

Nowadays, the CIN in Brest has 70,000 m2 of buildings on its 22-hectare site and it provides 4 types of training:
