Advanced Masters in the Engineering of Large Energy Structures (GCGOE)

At a time when many engineers with skills in the construction of big energy infrastructures (nuclear power stations, power plants, dams, LNG tanks, wind turbines…) are going into retirement and when French industrial and corporate expertise holds out significant prospects for contracts both in France and abroad, it is essential to train high-level managers with a strong capacity for international adaptation in Construction, Project Management, Operations, and Monitoring.

To meet these market needs in partnership with industries in the energy sector, École des Ponts ParisTech and CentraleSupélec have joined forces to offer a specialist training program in the civil engineering of large energy structures.

Objectives

The aim of this program is to prepare young civil engineers to manage design and construction projects for large energy production and storage structures: nuclear power stations, dams, offshore structures, wind farms.

Benefits 

  • Scholarships provided by the partner companies (tuition fees partially or totally paid)
  • The close partnership with companies in the sector; company-based assignments guaranteed
  • Job openings in a sector with potential
  • Two benchmark civil engineering schools
  • Site visits and one-week study trip

Career Opportunities

Graduates are likely to obtain posts as chief project engineers on large energy production and storage facilities working for owners (big global energy corporations), in project management (engineering design offices) and construction firms.

Testimonial

“The GCGOE Advanced Master trains specialist engineers precisely suited to EDF’s Civil Engineering needs. Graduate engineers are recruited from the engineering units to study civil engineering for new nuclear, hydroelectric, and thermal power station projects, etc., but also to maintain and upgrade existing plants. The content of the Specialist Masters gives engineers a solid grounding that enables them to get quickly up to speed in a new post and to take charge of complex projects that require sophisticated civil engineering expertise.”
