Master in Engineering – Major in Energy & Environment
Energy & Environment covers all of the high-tech professions involved in energy production and distribution, as well as consumption management.
It builds on a body of knowledge indispensable for any energy engineer ranging from thermodynamics to material science, from fossil fuel to renewable energy, and from nuclear generation to Smart Grid technologies. It also covers embedded energy sources such as batteries and fuel, which is the key to miniaturization, mobility and the transportation of the future. Considerable attention is devoted to buildings, which represent 40% of total energy consumption. Thermal materials are studied to understand the technologies of insulation, photonics, and solar panels to control the production of photovoltaic energy. Science and high-tech come together to design buildings with low energy consumption, create housing for the future and steer its main energy functions.
Beyond energy production this major explores the professions directly related to the protection of the environment and sustainable development:
- The control and management of energy infrastructures, in order to optimize the use of fossil fuels and renewable energy sources.
- Smart metering using sensor networks, real-time information systems and associated telecommunications systems.
- Energy automation functions of private homes and corporations, based on the knowledge of materials and the operation of solar panels.
- Expertise in fuels and batteries is fundamental to mass production of energy efficient hybrid vehicles and mainstreaming embedded systems.

For Energy and Environment, Embedded Systems and Information Systems, this is the French language requirement :
"French language requirement Please note that the French language proficiency is also required for all specializations. For specializations offered in English, the program is in English during the first year of and in French during the second year. Therefore, candidates must have at least an A2 level (B1 preferred) in French at the start of the program for these specializations. For the specializations offered in French, candidates must have a minimum of B2 in French at the start of the program. The French language level must be supported by TEF, TCF, DALF or DELF certifications."
