Engineer in Geosciences and Environment
Please Note That this program is Entirely taught in FRENCH
Strong population growth worldwide requires increased research sources of drinking water, energy resources or mineral but also to optimize their use.
The fragility of our planet requires the involvement of specialists able to carry out development projects environmentally friendly. Expert in the study of sub-soil, geological engineer is now the essential pivot of all exploration, exploitation and development, both in land area than sailor.
Specialist in natural risks in geotechnics
In the midst of Buildings and Public Works (BTP), the engineer must ensure soil stability to prevent the collapse of structures. Its main tasks in civil engineering will then collaborate in the work of recognition, the dimensioning and construction of various structures such as dams, bridges, dams, tunnels, highways ... It is also able to develop the territory to protect resources and prevent the collapse of the land.
Specialist hydrogeology as industrial risks
This engineer is often assigned to the prevention of industrial risks in connection with the environment. It can also become a professional storage of waste, water management or soil remediation. For example, when industrial uses water in its processes, wastewater is produced. We must then process the order not to pollute the rivers, groundwater, soils.
Mineral Resources Specialist
Today, the environment we live in is made up of minerals and metals, become vital in the functioning of our society. Thus, geological engineer involved in their exploration and exploitation, mostly in mines and quarries. It is also in charge of developing new prospects, while managing the technical, economic and environmental operating sites.
Specialist energy resources
The geological engineer involved closely in the search for new oil fields, gas as well as renewable energy such as geothermal, used to convert the heat energy in water. It also contributes to the optimization of production by geo-modeling of reservoirs.
Why become a geological engineer?
You have a natural taste for geology. Confronted in the first year to field experience, you are trained to solve practical problems related to soils and subsoils in France and abroad. Our differentiation? An educational approach in which the theory is not always the starting point of learning. You will learn to observe to draw conclusions from your experiences, your research and field work. Accompanied by a team of faculty and professionals, you will learn to act and solve the company's problems in the areas of mineral raw materials, fossil and renewable energy, land use or of environment.
