Learning beyond the lecture hall

The EMINE Master’s programme gives you plenty of chances to meet and engage with our industrial partners, business experts, fellow students, recent graduates and thriving start-ups throughout your two years of study.

 Master’s School kick-off

All first-year students studying for an InnoEnergy Master’s School programme get together to launch the new academic year together with teachers and industry experts from across the entire energy sector.

In-house training

You leave your university behind for a two-week training course at one of our key research centres or at a major energy company like EDF to find out exactly what it is like to be at the forefront of research or operations within the nuclear industry.

 Field visits

You will have the chance to visit state-of-the-art facilities in the nuclear field. For example, as part of the Summer School, students visit CORYS, a French SME that is a world reference in training and engineering simulators, including those designed for nuclear plants.

You will also have the chance to visit the CEA research centre, where you will gain a first-hand view of the technologies being developed in its labs, as well as prototypes for energy harvesting, sensors, sensor networks, smart materials, and contactless antennae and transmission.

Watt’s Up conference

With your fellow students, you have the chance to organise the annual Watt’s Up conference: an opportunity to debate world energy issues for a large and non-specialist audience. You’ll be supported by our scientific and industrial experts, and we encourage you to use creativity and spontaneity to present facts, answer questions and engage your audience.

PIMS projects

During the MSc EMINE programme, students will undertake a project based on the PIMS teaching method.  The project takes you out of the lecture hall, and puts you in a real-life situation, in which you will assess a current business challenge facing one of our start-up and entrepreneurial partners, and establish the necessary innovation to solve it. During the PIMS project you are given the tools and methods to assess, understand and reduce the market and technical risks around innovation, test hypotheses, and make a contribution to the growth and development of new businesses.


All students have the opportunity to submit their CV for a 6-8 month internship at one of the programme’s industrial partners.

Our innovative partners

Companies involved in the EMINE programme include Areva, EDF, Endesa and Vattenfall. In addition, the Commissariat à l’énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives (CEA) contributes expertise from one of the most important research centres in nuclear energy in Europe.
