Higher Education – Energy


The energy to build the future

Energy issues are high on the agenda for the planet. Low carbon and sustainable energy require new ways of thinking and massive innovations in the years to come.

As fossil fuels become scarcer and as awareness grows on their negative environmental impact, scientists and researchers are in a race against the clock to come up with ecologically and economically viable solutions.

A complete range of studies in energy production, storage and distribution

GIANT’s institutions of higher education offer students a complete range of studies in energy production, storage and distribution. Students will benefit from a holistic approach that allows them not only to acquire technical skills, but also enables them to increase their awareness of the societal and environmental issues at stake.

For example, Grenoble Ecole de Management and the Grenoble Institute of Technology have joined forces to create a new Specialized Masters program in Energy Management & Marketing, co-developed with Université Grenoble Alpes, the Tenerrdis cluster, and the CNRS, the French National Center for Scientific Research.

A direct access to on-site and nearby state-of-the-art research facilities

As part of their studies, GIANT’s higher education institutions also provide students with access to on-site and nearby state-of-the-art research facilities, including:

  • The resources shared by members of the Carnot Institute (the CEA, CNRS, Grenoble-Institute of Technology and UGA laboratories)
  • The laboratories and large-scale research facilities for physics (ESRF, ILL, EMBL, Néel Institute of the CNRS)
  • Converging topics with micro and nanotechnologies at MINATEC and intelligent systems and software at Minalogic.

Of course, students will be in contact with a wide range of enterprises working on renewable and sustainable energy sources so that they can acquire experience in the field as well as in management issues.
