New program: Energy Environment: Science Technology and Management
Full STEEM ahead: École Polytechnique launches new Graduate Degree to take on the challenges of the energy transition through science, technology and management
In December 2015, the Paris Agreement of the 21st Conference of the Parties (COP21) saw 195 countries adopt the first universal, global climate deal of its kind with the objective of limiting the rise in global temperatures to 2°C. This commitment illustrates the international consensus that tomorrow’s energy and climate problems need tackling, today. At the heart of this fight lies the future of energy production, and particularly renewable energy generation capacities, which are essential to reach these new goals.
The push to renewables that will provide the energy of a low-carbon society and help to limit the effects of climate change – a movement known as the energy transition – has become a priority of energy companies and public institutions alike. École Polytechnique’s new Energy Environment: Science Technology and Management (STEEM) Graduate Degree provides the platform to address these challenges of our new energy reality.
Training tomorrow’s energy leaders
STEEM is a two-year English-language program offering a multidisciplinary approach that brings together the study of energy and the environment, while empowering students through essential management training to shape tomorrow’s energy economy. Leveraging École Polytechnique’s leadership in the field of research and engineering, the program provides students with the tools necessary through a unique combination of applied engineering and environmental sciences, geopolitics, economics and management.
Hands-on, experimental training for real world application
Featuring a strong experimental focus and extensive interactions with industrial and research partners, the STEEM Graduate Degree will enable students to join the engineers, researchers and entrepreneurs already tackling the challenges of energy production and supply in the 21st century. The program enjoys extensive support from a range of industry players, evidence of the high demand for the essential skills it provides for developing the energy solutions of tomorrow.
