WHY ENROLL IN THIS PROGRAM?

Asset n° 1 

Pursue a PhD

Asset n°2

Access a wide range of career opportunities in the energy sector

Asset n°3

Benefit from a multidisciplinary approach to learning

The second year of the Energy Master’s program at the Institut Polytechnique de Paris consists of three majors with a set of common courses, plus specialized learning and an internship. The shared courses cover the energy transition for climate change mitigation, a global approach to engineering systems and the economics of energy markets, as well as French language courses.

The second-year Optimizing Energy Utilizations program is intended for students interested in building a less energy-intensive society by promoting optimized energy efficiency in buildings, transport and process industries. There are three main specialized courses: physical sciences and engineering, applied mathematics, and computer engineering. There is also a dedicated course in economics.

Objectives

The second-year Master’s program in Optimizing Energy Utilizations allows students to:

  • Develop an awareness of the challenges linked to the energy transition
  • Acquired a high-level understanding of the scientific and technological aspects of energy efficiency assessment and optimization
  • Gain experience in mathematical optimization applied to the energy sector and a broad understanding of energy economics
  • Solve complex problems in an international context, taking into account relevant technical, economic, social and environmental challenges

After graduation, students will be able to pursue a PhD or occupy a wide range of positions in the energy sector including:

  • R&D engineer specializing in wind or solar technologies, developing batteries or fuel cells, treating pollutants and waste in the energy industry
  • Smart grid developer
  • Wind farm or solar plant project manager
  • Consultant in sustainable development
  • Power analyst for energy markets
  • Public policy advisor

Course details will be available when admission opens.
