At École Polytechnique, we are committed to delivering programs which emphasize excellence in the applied sciences while providing a complete understanding of their industrial, economic and social context.
The Energy Environment: Science Technology and Management (STEEM) Graduate Degree offers you real-world technical expertise on environmental issues and renewable energy sources, along with an in-depth understanding of the economic, social and geopolitical challenges to their development.
Mechanics for Wind Energy Course Overview
Our holistic approach includes a strong management component, taught by professors from our partner business school HEC, to ensure you are ready to tackle the business and organizational challenges of this rapidly evolving sector. Part of your technical training will also be delivered by ENSTA ParisTech professors researching cutting-edge energy engineering solutions.
Alongside your coursework and research, you will receive expert insight via a series of master classes, where leading industry and regulatory figures will outline their strategy for navigating the energy landscape in the 21st century.
The STEEM program emphasizes hands-on, experimental learning by inviting you into with the worlds of research and industry, notably through four to six-month internships. To begin with, each student will be assigned to one of our degree professors involved in high-level research in order to benefit from their one-on-one mentoring.
On the École Polytechnique campus and within the Plateau de Saclay business and research cluster, you will have access to an exceptional concentration of high-level research facilities, including:
> École Polytechnique and Paris-Saclay campus research laboratories, startups, business incubator, fablab and experimental facilities.
> Upcoming EDF R&D research center, a unique research environment on renewable energy sources, intermittency and smart grid management.
The professional orientation of the STEEM program is strengthened by our industrial partners, such as Total, EDF, Saint-Gobain, Air Liquide, Schneider and many more. These partnerships present a wide range of opportunities, including scholarships, high-value internships and PhD funding.
Finally, our program is part of the European KIC InnoEnergy Consortium and its Renewable Energy program. Therefore, candidates may also apply via this European Master's Program and spend one year at Ecole polytechnique and another one at partner university.
