WHY ENROLL IN THIS PROGRAM?

Asset n° 1 

Enjoy the opportunity available to selected students to spend the fall semester (September to December) in New York following lectures at the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences (DEES) at Columbia University

Asset n°2

Acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to have a real impact on today’s major energy and pollution challenges

Asset n°3

Benefit from a world-class learning experience through an alliance between the Institut Polytechnique de Paris, Sorbonne Université, Ecole Normale Supérieure, Ecole des Ponts ParisTech and Columbia University

The purpose of the Water, Air Pollution and Energies (WAPE) program is to give students a thorough knowledge of the laws and interactions governing the evolution of our natural environment at a local and regional level, thus preparing them for a successful career in academia or industry.

Following this general framework, the WAPE track presents the dynamical, physical and biochemical processes driving oceans, atmosphere, air pollution and water cycles. The challenges of producing renewable energy are also addressed. Students will explore modern meteorological and oceanographic modelling and forecasting methods, as well as innovative observational techniques.

Objectives

This Year 2 Master’s program enables students to:

  • Critically assess the relevance and validity of different approaches to complex environmental problems
  • Determine the most appropriate parameters, develop efficient numerical algorithms and select appropriate measurement techniques relevant to specific impact studies or societal demands
  • Acquire a sound understanding of environment physics and dynamics
  • Work and communicate effectively in an English-speaking environment

This Master’s program is well adapted for the study of the hydrospheric and atmospheric environment subject to economic or social pressure and climate change. The advanced training provided makes students specialists in the physics and dynamics of atmospheric or coastal environments and in their evolutions associated to climate change.

Graduates of this Master’s program will be equipped to apply to companies or agencies focusing on environmental problems and/or evaluating environmental or climatic risk or dealing with management and optimization of natural resources or renewable energies.

Alternatively, graduates can undertake a PhD, opening the way for a research career in academia or industry.

Course details will be available when admission opens.
