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.

Pedagogy

PEDAGOGY AND TEACHING METHODS: ‘LEARNING BY DOING’ APPROACH

In a unique approach, University Mohammed VI Polytechnic implements an innovative teaching and research model focused on experimentation. With this in mind, the University's sites are equipped with "Living Labs" dedicated to applied research. These laboratories simulate actual work place situations as in mining facilities, experimental farms, factories, towns, etc.) open to the scientific community and students.

As part of the Master’s program in Green Building Engineering and Energy Efficiency, students will have special access to "Green and Smart City" of Benguerir, the Green Energy Park as well as OCP Industrial platforms. This innovative method of learning by doing aims to explore models of sustainability on a real full scale.
Finally, the pedagogical dynamics encourage active participation of students,
creativity, collective work and stimulate learner's autonomy.

CAREER OUTLOOK

FURTHER STUDIES, BUSINESS CREATION OR PROFESSIONAL INTEGRATION

The skills acquired throughout the program will grant job opportunities in the fields of engineering consulting, real estate development and infrastructure related to green building and renewable energy sectors.
