The decrease in fossil energy resources (and the resulting sustained rise in their price), the considerable increase in energy demand, supply difficulties, the weight of the energy sector in GHG emissions and the fight against climate change (reaffirmed by the ratification of the Paris Agreements in 2015) require a rapid and in-depth transformation of energy production and consumption patterns. To achieve this, the traditional players in the sector (Total, EDF, ENGIE, etc.), as well as new players, must mobilize and adapt thus relying heavily on the recruitment of new managerial profiles.
The objective of the “Sustainable Energy Futures” training course is to provide a response to the demands of the recruitment market by enabling the acquisition of solid knowledge and skills (418 hours of learning, 1 thesis, 5 months of internships in companies) throughout the Energy and Environment sector.
This program provides a holistic view of the Energy and Environment sectors by drawing on both science and technology, but also on the human and social sciences (political science, economics, etc.). Its main objective is to train executives capable of designing and implementing intelligent systems for managing energy infrastructures, controlling consumption and storing energy by using all the possibilities of “high-tech” in terms of control and command, sensor networks and information systems; it therefore enables them to understand the changes in the Energy and Environment sectors, to grasp the new associated challenges, to respond to and anticipate threats and to deploy appropriate solutions.
The program we offer is designed to enable future graduates:
- To enrich their fundamental knowledge while developing their generalist and high-tech culture.
- To master:
- all the scientific and technical aspects of the energy sector (production, transport, storage, distribution, uses, etc.).
- the energy of buildings and housing, of towns and cities
- information and communication technology
- To understand the impact of the sector on international relations and its implications in terms of risks and security.
- To understand the regulatory and energy regulation mechanisms and anticipate the main changes.
- To develop an overall vision of the energy sector
- the links between energy, environment, economy and society (sustainable development)
- Technical, socio-economic and political risks and opportunities associated with the energy sector
- To identify the main issues, levers and constraints of energy transition policies
- To anticipate the changes and innovations in the energy sector
- To acquire the skills essential for energy managers: purchasing and logistics, regulatory and legal aspects, financial approaches, project management, negotiation, communication, innovation
- Operation/Maintenance of energy infrastructures (power plant operator, dispatching, etc.)
- Design of production infrastructures in the design office (Photovoltaic, solar thermal & thermodynamic, wind, hydraulic, tidal, geothermal, methanation, etc.).
- Design of intelligent energy networks (Smart Grid)
- Building Energetician
- Embedded energy engineer
- Sustainable Development Engineer/Environmental Engineer/QSE/CSR
