    The Energy-plus building advanced master deals with energy management in the field of construction and renovation (thermal energy in buildings) and reducing the impact of buildings on the climate (sustainable construction). It aims to train engineers capable of designing low-consumption buildings (BBC) or with low carbon positive energy (E+C-).

    The course provides the keys and tools required to meet the expectations and requirements required by the implementation of the recommendations issued by the Grenelle Environment Forum, the energy transition act for green growth and the AGEC law, anti-waste for a circular economy, applied to buildings, in terms of thermal energy and eco-design.

    This master is in the 8th position of the Eduniversal 2021 ranking of the masters "Energies - Renewable energies". Learn more
