Specialized Master Marine Engineering and Energies

Specialized Masters are post diploma courses whose purpose is to offer either a specialization or a double competency. They provide unique knowledge for a specific position or industrial sector in
which companies have a real need.

Specialized Masters benefit from the strong ties between schools, their research laboratories, and industrial companies, relationships that ensure both rigor and technical expertise, skills in management and adequacy to companies’ needs in managers and executives.

As for their more conventional courses, Grandes Ecoles offer for Specialized Masters a flexible and adaptive education including work in small groups and high quality of teaching.
