Program Overview

Program Description:
Energy is vital for the growing and evolution of economies. It use needs to be optimized: our energy system must become sustainable. Power grids and buildings are a major concern for societies facing the necessity of sustainable development. Grids and buildings experience profound technological changes. They both converge through the smart grid where the buildings are an essential link via consumers, which become active (« prosumers »). In Europe and world over, significant investments have been for research and development in these fields. The Smart Grids and Buildings master proposes a 20 month full time 120 ECTS state-of-art technical training in smart energy management in buildings and power grids. It takes into account economic, societal and cultural aspects in these areas to prepare students for the challenges of tomorrow. Students graduating from the RBI master will gain expertise in managing the full energy chain (production, distribution, use) taking into account the environmental and societal aspects. The objective is to train highlevel master students to be able to take up the challenges associated with the new energy order and landscape. Student will receive a solid engineering know-how with economics and social skills. This Master programme relies on the outstanding scientific and technological environment of Grenoble in the field of energy, and the cutting edge technology platforms shared with research. -- Training method The teaching method is a gradual approach towards autonomy and knowledge appropriation: traditional lectures, tutorials, applying knowledge in technological platforms shared with research or software packages, multidisciplinary practical projects, visits. Our engineering training actively involves our industrial partners who often give lectures. Close relations between education, research and industry are a long Grenoble tradition. The education programme is oriented to develop the innovation and entrepreneurial spirit. A student coach will be assigned to each student during the 20 months to guide them in their knowledge, skills and know-how and by solving practical problems. Beyong training Students will also participate to the lively Grenoble student life. A whole variety of activities are offered by clubs and societies that allow students to take part in activities of their interests sports, sport fans (leading centre for mountain sports), into charity work (ISF/Engineers without borders)) or international relations (BEST Board of European Students of Technology), leisure activities (comics, astrology) or music.
