Specialty – Eco-design and Process Safety (EcoS)

Cur­rent indus­trial pro­cesses face a dual chal­lenge: the impe­ra­tive need to limit envi­ron­men­tal impacts and risks, and the increa­sing scar­ci­ty of raw mate­rials and ener­gy. In this context, the aim of the EcoS pro­gram is to train engi­neers capable of desi­gning and ope­ra­ting clean, safe and resource-effi­cient processes.


The aim of the EcoS pro­gram is to com­ple­ment a solid trai­ning in the various fields of pro­cess engi­nee­ring with spe­ci­fic courses that will enable the engi­neer to :

  • Assess the envi­ron­men­tal impacts and risks asso­cia­ted with a process;
  • Select and size-scale tech­no­lo­gies desi­gned to limit envi­ron­men­tal impacts (waste, effluents, etc.) and risks;
  • Desi­gn and opti­mize pro­cesses with a view to redu­cing raw mate­rial and ener­gy consump­tion, which also contri­butes to a reduc­tion in envi­ron­men­tal impact.

As part of the GP-EcoS pro­gramme, engi­nee­ring stu­dents will take on the fol­lo­wing curriculum:

  • Desi­gn, opti­mi­za­tion and inte­gra­tion of pro­cesses to reduce raw mate­rial and ener­gy consumption;
  • Desi­gning clean pro­cesses to mini­mize envi­ron­men­tal impact (emis­sions and discharges);
  • Control of pro­cess risks and major tech­no­lo­gi­cal hazards;
  • Water and liquid effluent treat­ment;
  • Waste treat­ment and valo­ri­sa­tion.

Academic staff

The trai­ning is pro­vi­ded by a tea­ching team brin­ging toge­ther tea­cher-resear­chers, indus­trial spea­kers and exter­nal experts, in order to gua­ran­tee qua­li­ty trai­ning adap­ted to the needs of com­pa­nies and the chal­lenges of society.


Stu­dents have expe­ri­men­tal and digi­tal plat­forms. Pilot ins­tal­la­tions allow stu­dents to put into prac­tice the fun­da­men­tal notions of pro­cess engi­nee­ring (sepa­ra­tion pro­cesses, heat exchan­gers, reac­tors, fluid mecha­nics, etc.). Stu­dents also have access to dif­ferent digi­tal tools for pro­cess simu­la­tion and optimization.

Professional openings

Nume­rous natio­nal and inter­na­tio­nal indus­trial part­ner­ships have been deve­lo­ped with nume­rous com­pa­nies lin­ked to pro­cess engi­nee­ring, nota­bly: Alstom, Avril, Bon­duelle, Engie, EDF, Fra­ma­tome, Nest­lé, Ora­no, Sano­fi, Suez, Tech­nip, Tereos, Total, Veo­lia, etc.


During their trai­ning, engi­nee­ring stu­dents must demons­trate their abi­li­ty to evolve in an inter­na­tio­nal context. To do this, they have the pos­si­bi­li­ty of fol­lo­wing one or more semes­ters of stu­dy and/or inter­n­ship abroad (around for­ty des­ti­na­tions around the world: Argen­ti­na, Bra­zil, Cana­da, Chile, Chi­na, Colom­bia, South Korea , Spain, Uni­ted States, Fin­land, Ita­ly, Japan, Por­tu­gal, Uni­ted King­dom, Swe­den, Tai­wan, etc.).

A double engi­nee­ring degree can be pre­pa­red with dif­ferent esta­blish­ments: uni­ver­si­ties of Braun­sch­weig (Ger­ma­ny), Cran­field (UK), Ita­ju­ba (Bra­zil), Escue­la colom­bia­na de inge­niería (Colom­bia), Uni­ver­si­dad del Sur (Argen­ti­na), Poly­tech­nique Mont­réal (Que­bec), École de Tech­no­lo­gie Supé­rieure de Mont­réal (Que­bec), etc.
