Energy engineering

If this training interests you it is probably because you are aware of the importance of energy issues for our planet and its inhabitants. Innovation is particularly exciting in this sector and IMT Lille Douai prepares you for this with this 5-year degree in energy engineering, accredited by the CTI and accessible through continuing education or an apprenticeship.

Source of employment

The engineer has a major role to play in the production, transport, management and use of energy. They need to have technical, scientific and managerial skills. All in a context that has to be multidisciplinary. For example, the fast-growing profession of energy efficiency engineer aims to reduce energy consumption and develop renewable energies in buildings.

Practical training

This is a work-study course with training at IMT Lille Douai and a host company. You will be monitored by a tutor, a college teacher, who ensures there is an ongoing and formalised relationship between the apprentice and their mentor. The latter, an experienced manager in the company organises your work and monitors it. The content of the assignments and the skills assessment established between you and the company are validated by IMT Lille Douai.

Academic training

The energy engineering course provides you with all the necessary scientific, technical and transversal skills. Alongside this, the company work placement allows you to put all this knowledge into practice and quickly become able to:

  • master an engineer’s scientific and technical tools;
  • manage a complex business project;
  • work in an interdisciplinary, international and intercultural context;
  • master energy and thermal calculation methods;
  • build and implement energy efficiency solutions;
  • design and operate energy production and transmission facilities;
