This master’s degree offers students multidisciplinary training in the field of engineering applied to energy production, storage, supply, and management, including in particular:

  • renewable energy (bioenergy, solar from materials to panels)
  • hydrogen production and power-to-gas
  • sustainable mobility based on hydrogen, power, or liquid biofuels
  • energy efficiency for industrial and service sectors

Take advantage of specialized training and research bench-scale to pilot-scale facilities of the chemical and biochemical engineering laboratory, and of the engineering physics workshops (CAD, soldering, 3D printing, physicochemical properties) of POLYTECH Clermont for project-based learning.
