The Master’s program in Electrical Engineering for Renewable Energies and Smart Grids is designed to meet a growing demand for highly qualified, competent profiles in energy management systems, with a spirit of innovation, able to adapt to technological changes in this area. These competencies are actively sought by network operators, for whom the implementation of increasingly efficient technologies in smart grids makes the network more adaptable and increases the resilience of the electrical system. This optimizes the level of reliability and quality of the power supply and facilitates the insertion in the grids of new means of production of distributed energy, particularly of renewable origin: wind, solar, fuel cell...

Graduates will also be able to advise and assist industrial consumers in their quest for energy efficiency and effectiveness and become real players in the energy system.

This program aims first of all to inculcate the fundamental and technical notions of the field of electrical engineering and renewable energies, while developing the management of technical projects, namely the designing, dimensioning, installation and maintenance of renewable energy systems. The integration of these techniques requires the mastery of tools for systems optimization and management, through the use of new information and communication technologies.

This proposal of a Master’s program fits perfectly into the development plan of the UM6P and the Moroccan energy strategy for the development of these energy resources by building sustainable expertise and a real scientific and technical know-how in the field of green energy.

Thus, the program is designed to develop skills in electrical engineering and, subsequently, master the integration of renewable energies and smart grids within power grids. The program deals with various issues mainly related to the modernization of existing electricity networks, the deployment of renewable energies, the optimization of decentralized production, as well as the security of energy supply and the limitation of global warming that have become Moroccan and African issues.

Upon completion of the program, students will gain the knowledge and skills necessary to participate effectively in the design, development and management of smart grid projects, as well as the implementation of renewable energy systems.

Among the skills targeted, we can state:

  • Modeling and simulation of energy systems taking account of all extrinsic conditions;

  • Analyze the robustness, dependability and eco-efficiency properties of energy management systems;

  • Engineering and deployment skills of smart grid technologies;

  • Measurement, analyzing and managing distributed energy production systems and the implementation of coherent energy mixes;

  • New ICT deployment skills to increase the penetration of renewable energies into the electricity grid;

  • The skills to apply a structured approach for the definition, development and deployment of projects for the realization of industrial electrical installations;

  • The skills to implement energy storage solutions and Power to X.

In addition to these technical skills, students will also be able to acquire transversal competences in "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 this Master's degree, students will have particular access to Benguerir's Experimental Mine, ILO’s Fab lab and Factory lab and to the renewable energy laboratory of the GREEN ENERGY PARK.

Finally, the pedagogical dynamics encourage active participation of students, creativity collective work and encourage learner autonomy.
