1st year of engineering

The first year of engineering training at ENGEES (level Bachelor 3) allows students to acquire the basic engineering sciences  necessary to tackle the rest of the engineering program focused on water, the environment and waste management. The fields covered include hydrogeology, fluid mechanics, statistics, scientific calculations, biology, water chemistry, hydrology and basic knowledge of the stakeholders involved in water management.

This year also allows engineering students to develop knowledge in process engineering (for water treatment), wastewater and drinking water networks (design), natural environment management, life sciences and flood control.

Modules allowing the acquisition of soft skills are also covered.
