SIMOSSimulation and Optimization of Energy Systems

The ENSGTI-UPPA offers international students specialized training in the field of energy. Due to the complexity of current industrial processes, the development and improvement of the operations of these facilities is possible only with rigorous optimization methods.

Facing of ever more complex installations in terms of production, conversion, transport, storage and consumption of energy (electricity, cold or heat), specialists must be able to optimize, elaborate and improve the functioning of these facilities.

The International Masters SIMOS (SIMulation and Optimization of energy Systems) offers specialized training in the field of energy and more specifically, the optimization of energy systems. This training is an alliance between proven skills in the field of energy transition and optimization. It is of high interest for students from around the world.

Student admitted to this master have a scientific Bachelor’s degree and strong basic knowledge in mathematics, physics, heat transfers, thermodynamics and IT. This master’s programme can be pursued within the framework of ERASMUS exchanges.

80% of the programme is taught in English. However, an introduction to the French language and culture is included. The SIMOS Master is organised in 4 semesters (120 European credits) including 3 semesters completed in France. The first semester S1 (30 ECTS credits) can be obtained by acquired knowledge accreditation

The main courses of this master deal with “Programming and numerical methods”, “Engineering thermodynamics”, “Worldwide energy supply issues”, “Energy conversion and storage”, “Energy efficiency and reuse” or “Modelling of energy systems”.

At the end of the master’s programme and in addition to theoretical knowledge they acquired during the first 3 semesters, students have to complete a work placement in a company or in a research laboratory. The main objective of this work placement is to enable students to get career opportunities in research and development, production or expertise in optimization of energy systems.
