Presentation of the Energy & Environment Engineering Cycle

The Energy and Environment major covers all “high-tech” professions in energy production, distribution, and consumption control. It is based on a body of knowledge that is essential for any energy engineer, ranging from thermodynamics to materials science, from fossil fuels to renewable energies, from control and command in nuclear production to intelligent electricity distribution networks (Smart Grid).

It is also interested inon-board energy (batteries and fuels), the key to miniaturization, mobility and transport of the future. This training leaves the beaten track of energy production to explore the professions directly linked to environmental protection and sustainable development.

The objectives of the Energy & Environment Engineering Cycle

Master all the technical, economic and financial aspects of the energy sector (production, transport, storage, distribution, uses, etc.) but also the energy of housing, cities, ICT, etc.

Identify the main issues, levers and constraints of energy transition policies.

Anticipate changes and innovations in the energy sector.

Acquire the skills essential to energy managers: purchasing and logistics, regulatory and legal aspects, financial approaches, project management, negotiation, communication, innovation.


The ECE Energy & Environment Major is based on theschool’s expertise in information systems, embedded systems and telecommunications.

  • Home automation and building heating
  • Introduction to energy conversion and storage
  • Control of industrial risks
  • Energy transformation and storage
  • Smart Grids, Smart Metering & Big Data
  • Water Management & Treatment
  • Environmental and energy policy and law

Career opportunities for the Energy & Environment engineering major

  • Development project manager
  • Construction Business Engineer
  • Operations Engineer
  • Design engineer in energy efficiency
  • Renewable Energy Project Manager
  • Design engineer in building energy
  • Energy and Environment Manager

The person in charge of the major – Alma SANTA RITA

She has a degree in Chemistry (UNAM, Mexico) and a Master in Energy and Environment (Ecole des Mines de Nantes).
She has more than 20 years of experience dedicated to the energy transition, holding high responsibility positions both in the public sector (Ministry of Economy and Ministry of Energy, Mexico) and in the private sector (Biofields, ENAL, Alego, Green city).

Alma is also co-founder of EneSus, a sustainable development consulting firm. Passionate about renewable energy, she has contributed to the development of various projects in Latin America and Europe, including solar, wind and geothermal power plants.
