In an increasingly urbanized African context, shifting priorities have placed building sustainability as a top priority. The expansion of this sector entails an increase in demand for qualified professionals in the field of sustainable and energy-efficient construction practices. In response to this growing demand, this Master’s program develops the essential skills to develop and implement solutions adapted to green buildings.
Morocco's strategy for energy requires involving environmental impact reduction by referring to the aspect of energy efficiency in the building. This advanced training will provide the tools and methods to optimize the buildings of the future.
The major target skills of this Master’s program are :
Mastering the fundamentals and techniques of green building engineering and technology;
Developing strategies for energy-efficient systems and their integration in the building;
Adopting a strategic approach to energy management;
Mastering the regulations in force in the fields of renewable energy and energy efficiency in buildings;
Understanding the energy optimization Tools;
Becoming expert in building physics.
Beyond the technical skills that revolve around the mastery, design, development and characterization of all types of materials destined directly for industrial applications or that which fit into the priority research themes in Morocco, students will also acquire soft skills (communication, teamwork and English) and business skills (innovation, entrepreneurship, project management) allowing them to interact effectively in their future working environments.
