It’s easier to break an atom than a prejudice


Make your planet green again

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 in on-board energy (batteries and fuels), the key to miniaturisation, mobility and transport of the future.


The ECE New Energies and Environment major relies on the school’s expertise in information systems, embedded systems and telecommunications. It leaves the beaten track of energy production to explore the professions directly linked to environmental protection and sustainable development.

  • Home automation and building heating
  • Control of industrial risks
  • Energy transformation and storage
  • Smart Grids, Smart Metering & Big Data
  • Design & Operation of facilities in the digital age
  • Environmental Law, ICPE and Waste Management & Recovery
  • Water Management & Treatment

The objectives of the training

  • 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.

ZOOM on Philippe HAIK, Head of the major

Graduated from the executive master ” Energy, Environment and Regulation ” of Sciences Po Paris (2017) and from the master specialized in Industrial Risk Management of ESCP Europe/Mines ParisTech (2010), PhD in computer science (1999), engineer Supélec (1996) and ESTP (1994).

Philippe Haïk was previously a research engineer and expert in knowledge engineering within the Research and Development division of the EDF Group.
