Teaching philosophy

Although it offers a fairly typical education for an engineering school, the EMN strives to give its graduate a practical, pragmatic approach to the technical and business skills it teaches. Manifestations of this philosophy include programs such as the Apprentissage Par l'Action ("Learning through interaction"), a case-based approach to sciences that places students in front of industry-inspired puzzles and develops students' analytic skills and intellectual curiosity. The EMN is also a partner of "La main à la pâte" ("hands in the dough"), an innovative initiative to teach sciences in primary courses supported by Nobel Prize in physics in 1992.

Programs taught in English

EMN offers 4 Master of Science programs fully taught in English. The programs are:

  • MOST (MSc in Management and Optimization of Supply Chains and Transport).
  • PM3E (Master of Science in Project Management for Environnemental and Energy Engineering).
  • ME3 joint masters (European joint Masters in Management and Engineering of Environment and Energy) in collaboration with 4 other partners (UPM Madrid, KTH Stockholm, BME Budapest and Queen’s University Belfast). This program has obtained the prestigious Erasmus Mundus label of the European Union.
