New 3rd edition of IFP School’s “Sustainable mobility” MOOC
The IFP School MOOC on “Sustainable mobility: technical and environmental challenges for the automotive sector”, launched in 2014 and awarded “best training device for Education” by the Cegos group, will soon come out with a new edition.
Due to the high number of participants in 2014 and 2015 (the first two editions had gathered over 8300 people worldwide) and the high completion rate of this MOOC, a 3rd edition will be launched on 20th February 2017 with several novelties.
New: a virtual reality visit of a test bench and a contest that will allow 5 participants to win virtual reality glasses.
2016 Careers Day
IFP School’s information day on "professions and careers in energy and powertrain engineering", aimed at students in their penultimate or last year of engineering school, was held on Friday 18 November 2016 in Rueil-Malmaison.
The event was an opportunity for the young people attending to meet company executives, technical sector managers and junior engineers working in the energy and powertrain industry as well as human resources managers to discuss the theme of the challenges of the energy transition in the 21st century. Participants could choose between two round tables: "Careers and the energy transition", led by Philippe Pinchon, Dean of IFP School, or "Careers and the powertrains of tomorrow", led by Pierre Duret, Director of IFP School’s Center for IC Engines and Hydrocarbon Utilizations. This year, the round tables gave students the chance to talk with representatives from Delphi, Engie, ExxonMobil, Groupe PSA, IFP Energies nouvelles, Renault, Technip and Total.
The workshops focusing on specific professions, which took the form of meetings/debates between students and young professionals from the sector concerned, covered the following themes:
IFPEN's Energy Transition Day
The 9th edition of IFPEN‘s Energy Transition Day, organized for IFP School’s Class of 2017 students was held on 13th October 2016.
IFPEN projects in the field of new technologies for energy, environment and transport were presented to raise awareness among the students on energy and environment issues that they will face during their career.
Didier Houssin, CEO of IFP Energies nouvelles, presented the current energy context, and raised the themes of energy transition and talked about the future challenges to be taken up.
Workshops around IFPEN’s three strategic priorities were then organized, namely Sustainable mobility, New energies and Responsible oil & gas, as well as an interactive roundtable about energy transition bringing the event to a close.
During the roundtable, students were able to exchange with world energy players (The Brussels Office, CNRS, IEA, Renault Nissan, Total Energies Nouvelles).
