Biomass and waste for energy and materials
A training to give you all the skills in process engineering, environment and energy to solve protection of the environment issues.
Protection of the environment, circular economy, waste reduction, environment, energy, process engineering
WHY THIS COURSE?
Given the current context of natural resource depletion, environmental and public health crises related to air and water pollution and pressures on energy supplies, circular economy is becoming day after day a new development strategy for nations. Better eco-design, waste prevention and reuse bring significant net savings for businesses and for cities, while also reducing environmental harm and bringing new job opportunities. Master BiWEM is at the crossroads of process engineering, environmental sciences and economics as well as social sciences and humanities.
Entirely taught in English, Master BiWEM is design to top-performing students willing to become engineers and project managers able to find solutions to the protection of the environment issues, climate change, waste reduction and valorization, circular economy. As a student of Master BiWEM, you will acquire skills and expert knowledge on bioenergy, recycling and waste valorization, process engineering and on environmental and social economic issues.
The Program will provide you with real-world technical expertise on environmental issues, including classes taught by professionals, company visits, 3-semester industrial project and one-semester internship in the industrial worlds, and will allow you to develop your professional network starting from the beginning of the program.
