One of the key, current challenges in the energy market is the development and integration of renewable energy sources in all energy solutions. The renewable energy sector is experiencing strong growth, which has created a significant need for new skills.
This certificate program is run in partnership by École Polytechnique Executive Education, HEC Paris and Mohammed VI Polytechnic University (UMVIP). The key aim is to develop skills in both engineering and entrepreneurship by addressing the specific nature of the Moroccan and African markets in general.
The program is aimed at:
Engineers in the energy sector, researchers or engineers who are creating start-ups in the renewable energy sector, managers in public institutions or legal practitioners with a project in this sector.
The program benefits from a highly varied learning approach. It features SPOCs (small private online courses), virtual classes, high-level experimental teaching in the research laboratories of École Polytechnique and IRESEN (Green Energy Park), face-to-face courses and exchanges with entrepreneurs and start-up founders.
Composed of 8 days face-to-face learning, 13 weeks of distance learning and 10 weeks to draft and complete the professional project.
