A centre of excellence for water and environment professions
ENGINEERING MASTER DEGREE
This in-depth course, accredited by the Commission des Titres d’Ingénieurs (accreditation board for engineering education), is aimed at future executives whose skills will befocused in the fields of hydraulics, public amenities,sustainable spatial planning, environmental and sanitary risks, protection of the environment and waste management.
DYNAMIC AND INNOVATIVE MEN AND WOMEN
In their respective professions, engineers from ENGEES aim to both sustainably manage natural resources and protect the environment.
Naturally the aim of ENGEES’ courses is to provide future engineers with a solid scientific and technical base, whilst offering a human sciences approach that focuses on personal development, creativity, project management and governance.
A number of students are paid by the Govermentand go on to become part of the Organisation of Agricultural and Environmental Engineers run by the Ministry for Agriculture.
After 2 years of core curriculum, in the 3rd year the school gives students the chance to specialize, either internally or in partnership with another establishment, enabling each individual to develop their skills according to their personal goals.
Teaching is very varied, alternating between lectures and conferences, tutorials and laboratory work, technical projects, field trips and work placements. Through a personalized tutoring system, ENGEES ensures that each student develops his or her own professional project.
CONDITIONS OF ENTRY
Preparatory classes (entrance exam A): external entrance exam
Bachelor’s degree (entrance exam B): external entrance exam
L2 (2 year degree), DUT (university diploma in technology) or BTS (advanced vocational diploma) relevant to ENGEES’courses: admission based on qualifications and entrance exams.
Civil servants or state employees: internal entrance exam
WORK PLACEMENTS AND FIELD TRIPS
Students of engineering degree spend almost 10 months on work placements during the 3 years course. Several work placements and field trips are an integral part of the course and enable the students to apply everything they have learned at the school to practical situations. The international dimension of the course is strengthened by the students spending a minimum of one month abroad.
ENGEES ENGINEERING DEGREE THROUGH AN APPRENTICESHIP
This work-study programme begins with 2 months of full time core curriculum with the students in initial education, then the courses take different paths, with the apprentices beginning their work placements on the basis of a 4 weeks cycle:2 weeks as an apprentice and 2 weeks in the classroom.
Overall, two thirds of the course is spent in a company. This course is for students who are interested in operations and works, and therefore particularly focuses on:
The apprentice is paid by the company.
SOUGHT-AFTER EXPERTISE IN VARIED FIELDS
The growing importance of sustainable development and an optimised management of natural resources means that there are plenty of job opportunities in both the private (service companies, engineering and design companies, research centres, building and public works companies, etc) and the public sector (water agencies, State or local authority administrations).
- Works engineer
- Operations engineer
- Consultant or research engineer
- Business development manager/ technical-commercial executive
- R&D engineer
Bachelor degrees (professional licence) : ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION SPECIALISM: “MANAGEMENT OF URBAN AND RURAL WATERS”
To provide responses to environmental problems linked to water resources and/or wastewater.
To optimize technical solutions for water resources and artificial hydraulic networks.
The role of assistant engineers who have taken this course is structured around production and sustainable development.
The foundation theme of sustainable development is applied to everything from upstream water resources to the receiving body of water,via quality water distribution, wastewater and rainwater collection and then its treatment in specialized units.
The professional degree specifically targets public utilities.
Operational head of a works or operations service
Local authority executive
DEGREES OF MASTÈRES SPÉCIALISÉS (MS) AND CERTIFICATES OF HIGHER EDUCATION
ENGEES offers 2 MS’s degrees that areaccredited by the Conférence des Grandes Écoles, enabling students to acquire expertise that is highly valued by companies. The course lasts 12 months and includes a 6 months work placement in a company. Half of the teaching is carried out by top level “external” professionals.
Drinking water and sanitation (EPA)
This course, run jointly with the Certificate of Higher Education “Public Hygiene Amenities”, enables students to specialize in the technical field of hydraulics applied to public utilities for drinking water and urban sanitation.
This course aims to educate future water and sanitation project managers, who will work in the field oflocal authority utilities: water protection, purification and distribution; the collection and treatment of wastewater and rainwater. The teaching focuses on providing the students with basic knowledge, or updating their current knowledge, in hydraulics and waterchemistry
A SOUGHT-AFTER PROFESSIONAL APPROACH
61% of graduates find a job beforethey finish the course and 94% find one at the end of the course(2006 data).
- Head of service or researcher in local authorities or in a public body.
- Business development manager or researcher, project manager in a design and engineering firm.
- Project or operations manager in a service company.the Agronomic and Veterinary Institute Hassan II of Rabat, Morocco.
Management, treatment and rehabilitation of waste (GEDE)
This course, run jointly with the Certificate of Higher Education in “Waste Management” enables students to complete an in-depth technical specialization in any sector of the field through gaining knowledge and expertise in different branches. Two options are offered at the end ofthe core curriculum: “urban waste” and “industrial waste”.
The main aim is to enable engineers and graduates to acquire a multi-discipline technical specializationin the field of waste management. The course also includes a managerial element.
VARIED PROFESSIONAL PROSPECTS
This type of course benefits from an expanding market and can lead to different types of positions:
- Environmental manager in acompany or local authority
- Business development manager
- Head of operations in an urban or industrial waste treatment plant
- Project manager
- Engineer or head of service in local authorities or service companies, etc.
