Presentation of MSc Sustainable Energy Futures

The decrease in fossil energies (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 profound transformation of energy production and consumption.

To achieve this, the traditional players in the sector (Total, EDF, ENGIE, etc.), as well as the new players, must mobilize and adapt by relying heavily on the recruiting new profiles .

This program offers a global vision of the energy and environment sectors, drawing on both science and technology, but also on the humanities 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 thus enables them to understand the changes in the energy sectors. Energy and the Environment, tounderstand the new associated challenges, to respond to andanticipate threats and to deploy appropriate solutions.
