ENERGY & ENVIRONMENT | EPF Ecole d'ingénieurs




The aim of the “ENERGY & ENVIRONMENT” major is to train flexible and adaptable engineers, able to solve new industrial issues relating to the sustainability transition. At the end of this major, graduates acquire a set of scientific, technical and management skills based on:

An industrial approach to production modes, energy and materials recovery, process management and monitoring

The political, economic, geopolitical and legislative aspects of energy and the environment

Mineral and energy resource management issues including extraction, operation, industrial production, industrial ecology, life cycle analysis and recovery techniques for energy and materials.

This program is partially taught in english.


The “Energy & Environment” major extends over two academic years and is organised around two in-class semesters, alternating with two internship semesters: a student engineer internship in Year 4 and a “final year project” internship in Year 5. Two elective course units (CUs) are chosen in Years 4 and 5 from the eight offered. Choosing their elective CUs in accordance with their preferences and career path means that students can:

Orient their program towards the energy, environment and/or digital sector by choosing specific CUs.

Maintain a very broad view of these interconnected fields by choosing CUs from all three fields.

Compulsory CUs are offered in English and French. Some elective CUs are taught in English, in French or in both. It is possible to complete a track entirely in English.


Projects are carried out in each academic semester, in collaboration with a company. The various taught elements are applied, during the project, which represents a common thread for the entire semester and is chosen in line with the CUs selected.

Here are a few examples of projects carried out:

CSCP: developing a low-cost, sustainable energy generation solution for an NGO in Western Africa.

“CartoPollu”: In-situ measurement of pollution data in rivers or on coastlines using a low-cost, easily transportable, autonomous surface robot.

“Cat Nat”: Analysing rain falloff in cities, developments and the CATNAT fund. Study of the mismatch between the probability of a natural disaster occurring compared to the number of decrees relating to these.
