Graduate Degree - Energy Environment : Science Technology & Management

Contexte

A global consensus on the urgency to enact measures to mitigate climate change has emerged in recent years, culminating in December 2015 with the Paris Agreement at the 21st Conference of the Parties (COP21). 195 countries adopted the first-ever universal, global climate deal to limit to 2°C the rise in global temperatures. The agreement also states its aim of limiting the increase to 1.5°C, which would significantly reduce the risk of climate change for ecosystems and human populations. The future of energy production, and particularly renewable energy generation capacities, lies at the heart of efforts to reach these new goals.

The transformation in energy production is generally known as the “energy transition”. This shift away from fossil fuels and towards more sustainable alternatives has become not only a political and environmental imperative, but also an economic one. The technologies and business models of this changing energy landscape call for increasingly sophisticated expertise.

Even if several renewable energy sources (wind, solar, biomass,  hydro and marine power) are highly promising, there are still challenges involved with managing their intermittency and making accurate, reliable power generation forecasts. This, in turn, makes it difficult to determine their financial viability.

Finally, the capacity to manage environmental resources and to study the interactions between the geophysical environment, energy production and consumption will continue to grow more important. Corporations, research teams and public bodies alike will need experts that combine cutting-edge technical know-how, a complete understanding of the interactions between energy and the environment and a strong entrepreneurial streak to carry projects forward in this new landscape.

This is precisely the kind of rich, multidisciplinary training for which École Polytechnique is world-renowned. Treating energy and the environment as two equal parts that will determine our climate future, the Energy Environment: Science Technology and Management (STEEM) Graduate Degree provides a sophisticated understanding of energy in the 21st century. Based on a foundation of engineering and applied sciences training, the STEEM program offers graduates the tools to understand the socioeconomic context of climate change and to master the evolutions of our relationship with energy. 

Objectif

The Energy Environment: Science Technology and Management (STEEM) graduate degree program fosters real-world technical expertise at the intersection between environmental issues and the future of energy. In Ecole Polytechnique’s grand tradition of multidisciplinary education, this professionally-oriented program provides in-depth understanding of the scientific, economic and industrial context of renewable energy and the environment.

The STEEM program combines management experience with first-class engineering and scientific training, making our graduates highly sought after. The numerous industrial and research partnerships within this degree program ensure students will be suited to meet the 21st century’s energy and environmental challenges within a variety of sectors including industry, start-ups and public organizations. For photovoltaics you will take advantage of the new world major R&D institute IPVF close to the campus.

contenu

Courses include high-level scientific master classes taught by faculty from Ecole Polytechnique and our partner school ENSTA. The management component of coursework is taught by faculty from our partner HEC Paris, ranked by the Financial Times as the #2 business school in Europe. Students will also participate in company visits where leading figures from industry, research and regulatory bodies will provide further insight into the energy and environment landscape.

domaines d'enseignement

Mécanique, Physique, Mathématiques appliquées, Management, Innovation et Entrepreneuriat, Langues, Humanité et sciences sociales.

métiers

Comprising high-value industrial partnerships, internships and international academic exchanges, the Energy Environment: Science Technology and Management (STEEM) Graduate Degree is designed to ensure you are ready for a new professional world upon graduation.

As evidenced by the considerable amount of industry support for this degree, the skills you will acquire are increasingly in high demand across corporate, research and public sectors. The COP21 alone resulted in commitments from 195 countries to submit an assessment of their renewable energy capacities, along with a timeline for their transition to a low-carbon or carbon-free society.

Our graduates will be ideally suited to meet the needs for both technical know-how and managerial expertise to implement energy and environmental policies for leading manufacturers, innovative start-ups and public organizations.

During the two-year program, you will have a wide range of opportunities to build relationships with École Polytechnique’s local and international industrial and research partners. The management skills you acquire will be a significant asset in your career progression.

débouchés

The STEEM program is also a gateway to a research career, with our proximity to numerous research institutions providing an ideal platform to pursue a PhD with funding from our industrial or academic partners.

For the internationally focused, the perspectives offered by the STEEM Graduate Degree naturally carry over to career opportunities around the world. Our international partnerships in energy, environment, industry and research sectors provide you with the perfect platform from which to launch your global career.
