About Environmental Engineering and Sustainability Management, Master Degree - at École Polytechnique

The Environmental Engineering and Sustainability Management (EESM) Master's is a two-year program, entirely taught in English and designed for top-performing students. The course aims to train future project managers to tackle a wide variety of environmental challenges.

The Program provides students with real-world technical expertise on environmental issues, including soil and water pollution diagnosis, and treatment and valorization processes, as well as in-depth understanding of the economic and social challenges surrounding their development. The course's technical and management classes also cover international regulations and ethical issues.

The EESM Master's is involved in a number of valuable industrial partnerships, and offers opportunities for internships and international academic exchanges.


The Environmental Engineering and Sustainability Management (EESM) Master's Program aims to produce project managers who are able to tackle a wide variety of environmental challenges, such as industrial discharge control, chemical and biological approaches to pollution diagnosis, water and soil treatment, and waste valorization. The Program also covers new concepts such as life cycle assessment, eco-design, omics sciences, numerical simulation and modeling.

While most master's courses devoted to environmental issues only provide students with technical skills, EESM also prepares you for managing positions. All the professors in the Program work to help students become both technically skilled and job ready by the end of the two years. Throughout the Master's Program, students have the opportunity to go on a number of field trips and company visits. They also get to put their skills into practice during two internships:

  • The first internship takes place at the end of Year 1 and lasts four months. During this period, students must work on a scientific project.
  • The second internship takes place at the end of the Program and lasts five to six months. Students have the choice between completing either a scientific or managerial project.

Student Testimonial

Something that is great about the program is that a big part of it is practical work. You don’t just sit and study the theory, you practice.
