ESIEE Paris offers a specialization in Renewable energy and energy efficiency within its engineering program during the last two years of the course, accredited by the Engineering Titles Commission (CTI).
The program trains engineers capable of meeting the challenges of climate change and the energy transition by transforming supply (decarbonization of the energy mix, increased use of renewable energies) and controlling demand (energy sobriety and efficiency) in their technological, economic, and regulatory dimensions, with particular attention to digital tools (modeling, simulation, optimization, connected objects, data processing) and their implementation at different scales (building, neighborhood, city, etc.).
At the end of the first year of the engineering cycle, students choose their field of study. The course of study is spread over two years with compulsory and optional scientific and technical courses, management courses and modern languages.
The courses are organized in two semesters, each one subdivided into two periods. The first semester consists of two teaching periods. The second semester is made up of one teaching period and an internship period of at least 12 weeks. From January to April, students must work in teams on multidisciplinary projects proposed by industrial partners, laboratories or ESIEE Paris teachers. All students may take optional modern language 2 courses.

The renewable energy engineer, also known as a renewable energy R&D (research and development) engineer, is responsible for modernizing techniques, complying with environmental standards, improving performance and accelerating the ecological transition. The environmental issue is taking on a central role at the global level, so there are many professional opportunities.
