Focusing on science, this Master in energy engineering aims to give students real-world technical expertise in strategic renewable energy disciplines, as well as an in-depth understanding of the issues associated with renewable energies and their development, including the short and medium-term technical, technological, geopolitical and environmental challenges.
The program’s main objectives are to:
- Prepare students for careers in renewable energy advanced research and management.
- Train the researchers and engineers who will help to prepare and implement energy strategies and policies for leading manufacturers, innovative start-ups and public organizations.
Classes are taught by university lecturers and experts from the businesses partnering the program. The program is divided into two semesters:
- first semester : academic courses
- second semester : intership in a research lanoratory or in an industrial company (in France or abroad)

KIC InnoEnergy, a Knowledge and Innovation Community formed through the cooperation of major European universities, research centers and industrial groups, supports the development of higher education, new technologies, innovation and entrepreneurship in the field of sustainable energy. Within this framework, the Renewable Energy (RENE) Masters Program has been developed among four major European universities:Ecole Polytechnique,Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) in Portugal. Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) in Spain, Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan (KTH) in Sweden. Students do their first year in one of the four partner universities and the second in one of the three others. At the end of the program, successful participants receive a double degree from the two universities at which they did their Masters work, as well as European Institute of Technology (EIT) certification. A double China-EU degree for Chinese ICARE students: ParisTech was selected by the Delegation of the European Union to China in July 2010 to coordinate the creation of the China-EU Institute for Clean and Renewable Energy (ICARE) in Wuhan.
