The approach is global, multicultural and based on an interdisciplinary education. This program is ongoing with World-Class Universities from France (MINES ParisTech, INSA Lyon), China (Tsinghua University - Beijing) and in partnership with Upenn (USA).
The Post Master's degree in Environmental Management allows students from diverse educational backgrounds, with an eye on future professional responsibilities, to acquire more than just basic scientific understanding. They gain a cross-disciplinary view and a critical mindset toward issues in sustainable development and an environmental dimension of those issues. The pedagogy takes into account the latest scientific and technological advances in every field. Each theme is addressed from a scientific, political, social, ethical, managerial and regulatory standpoint.
The program encompasses all the main environment and energy challenges faced by global actors with two main themes: environmental sciences (engineering and innovative technologies) and environmental strategies (project management). The EnvIM program is based on a really innovative and operational pedagogy. Students are asked to work on multiple case studies and real projects developed in cooperation with leading industrials. Fieldtrips, in France and abroad, are also organized, in order to meet local and international players. Outstanding speakers, from international firms, civil society and research area, introduce students to the latest scientific developments and innovative management practices in order to have a direct feedback about the way major companies deal with environmental issues.
The EnvIM program is a successful collaboration between MINES ParisTech, INSA Lyon, Tsinghua University and Upenn since 2007. This program targets environmental and energetic issues of direct relevance for ecological transition and sustainable development in an international context. It offers future young professionals to gain the necessary capacities and cross-disciplinary knowledges, and encourages them to develop a strategic vision on innovation projects in order to seize the opportunities presented by these changes.
In 2014, the EnvIM Europe program was created to meet the demand of a growing range of international applicants, looking for a Post Master's degree in environment, mixing environmental management and environmental engineering, interested only in the French part of the EnvIM program (MINES ParisTech and INSA Lyon).
Thus, the EnvIM Europe program is based on the historical EnvIM strenghts, knowledges and partnerships. Instead of an academic exchange in China, students are asked to work on a specific project taking place in Europe.
