Découvrez la formation ingénieur dans le domaine des Smart Cities

Vous souhaitez explorer les métiers directement liés à l’amélioration du cadre de vie et à la protection de l’environnement ?

La construction de bâtiments respectant les normes environnementales et énergétiques est un défi pour les futurs ingénieurs : le domaine Smart Cities est donc axé sur le développement urbain des quartiers ou des villes et prend en compte l’efficacité énergétique de l’habitat, l’emploi des nouvelles énergies et technologies et la gestion environnementale des espaces.

La formation, dispensée entièrement en anglais, traite notamment de l’aménagement urbain, de la gestion technique et de l’analyse énergétique des bâtiments.

Elle est adossée à un pôle de recherche dont les travaux sont au service de l »innovation et du développement économique.

And what do we do later ?

Professional career opportunities :

  • Project manager in design offices : Eco-construction, environmental, transport and mobility.
  • Project manager in responsible urbanism design offices, architecture firms.
  • Manage an eco-neigbourhood development plan within the local and national authorities.
  • Project and contract management.
  • Individual project manager within construction companies and housing stock managers

The Smart Cities specialization is accessible from year 4 and is taught entirely in English. Smart Cities prepares students to work in the areas of sustainable urban development, such as energy efficiency, incorporating new energies and technologies, as well as eco environment space management.

It allows future professionals to become familiar with complex, multi-disciplinary projects: The program will allow participants to :

  • Develop analytical and planning skills within the context of an eco-neighbourhood, and to know how to develop an urban project with an environmental bias. To have an understanding of the holistic approach to resource management.
  • Deepen their understanding of energy and the stakes involved; their applications to buildings; renewable energies – their production and distribution – Integrate co-design collaborative working methods; innovation management
I have been studying at HEI for 3 years now, and I was tempted by the presentation we saw in third year on Smart Cities.

This domain demands knowledge and usage of: building skills, design and also new technology.
There is also a dimension linked to environmental and sustainable development and as a future engineer, these are two vital areas.

I would like to work abroad, in a building company that creates new infrastructures that are connected and sustainable e.g. schools or hospitals.

Our lessons are interesting and the teachers really know what they are talking about, due to their high level of training, enthusiasm and knowledge.

Two years to train you

  • Sustainable urbanism : Urban planning / Eco districts / Transport and sustainable mobility/ New economies (circular…) / Sociology
  • Building energy performance : Introduction to architecture / Environmental engineering / Energy and environmental labels / Bioclimatic architecture / Eco renovation
  • Ecology, landscape, ambiance : Water management / Waste management / Air quality / Landscaping and green spaces.
  • Energy : Smart grids/ New information systems and the internet of things/ Building management systems and home automation/ Fundamentals of energy and renewable energies/ Habitat as energy producer and storage
  • Workshops : Urbanism and building (1 workshop by year) Innovative teaching During the student-centred learning program our students deal with real situations. They will create their own eco-neighbourhood design plan on the basis of a real site and project. During this design project they will be required to apply the knowledge that they have gained from all the different teachings. Cross-disciplinary experts bring their knowledge and know-how. This program is given entirely in English to develop communication skills in an international context.
