Apprenticeship engineering courses

Energy, risks and the environment (ERE) department

Depending on the options they choose, engineering graduates work in the following areas:

  • Prevention engineering associated with technological risks, protection of people, infrastructure and property in a company and damage compensation;
  • Quality engineering, which encompasses sustainable development approaches;
  • Energy efficiency in the field of building renovation.

The professions this course prepares apprentices for involve three types of activity:

  • Developing corporate strategy in terms of energy efficiency, quality and risk governance;
  • Engineering of energy, quality and risk management systems;
  • Change management in risk, quality and energy efficiency approaches

These three types of activity:

  • Developing corporate strategy in terms of risk governance, quality and energetic efficiency ;
  • Engineering of systèmes management in risk, quality and energy ;
  • Steering change management approaches in risk, quality and energetic efficiency.

These three activity groups:

  • Structure the skill set listed in the course's competency framework;
  • Are economically and socially approved;
  • Factor in the concerns for protection of people and the environment.

This is a work-linked training course lasting 3 years, with 1/3 of the time given over to teaching and 2/3 to work in a company.
The modules (accounting for about 1800 hours of classes in total) are made up each year of the core syllabus plus elective modules, including:

  • Risk Governance and Engineering
  • Quality Engineering
  • Energy Efficiency Management
