Students feedbacks about the EnvIM - option Asia program

EnvIM - Asian option

 


Clément Tremblay, EnvIM 2014

    

I come from a very scientific background, and I wanted to have a broader view of the environment. My idea was to acquire additional skills, such as management. I especially enjoyed the class project on industrial ecology. It was very challenging and it brought me many skills: to be able to plan, to be diplomatic and to make people work together.

There were lots of countries represented in the master : 4 Africans, 3 Chinese, 1 American. It was very interesting to see our cultural differences, and how our different visions enhanced the projects we worked on.

Before, I’ve always learned from the textbooks. This program offered me the opportunity to understand concretely many aspects of the environment, by studying real cases: Waste management, water management, industrial ecology...

We’ve had a 6-month project on industrial ecology. All the students formed a team, so we had to divide the tasks among us. It helped us to better understand team working and how to manage such a big project, from the very beginning to the very end.

One of the things I really like about the EnvIM post-master’s program is studying both in China and in France. I want to have the opportunity to go to other countries, and actually and learn their success, strengths and weaknesses

 Everybody came with their own sense of identity, their own backgrounds and their own personal experiences. But I feeled that we were able to coexist as a group, and that we were able to overcome those, and actually the multiculturalism and the students’ countries gave us our greatest strengths and allowed us to achieve a lot.


Victoire Senlis, EnvIM 2014

    

I have a management background, and I wanted to learn more about the technical aspects of the environment.  EnvIM was the best program I found to fulfill that ambition.

It was very interesting to work in a multicultural team, because people from different countries have different conceptions and different ways of working.
