The Water and Waste Project Management Chair offers ENGEES students basic and advanced education programmes in this field. The basic programme is offered to first-year students in the form of a several-day seminar that covers the general essentials of project management. They are placed in an actual work environment (a study or technical project) to familiarise themselves with realities on the ground. The Chair’s advanced programme offers ENGEES students modules adapted to their training needs, for example in knowledge transfer. It benefits from SUEZ’s knowledge, skills and experience gained in France and internationally. In addition to setting up training, every year SUEZ offers at least 1 CIFRE (Conventions Industrielles de Formation par la Recherche) research grant to support students’ research.
SUEZ offers internships to future ENGEES engineers to enable them to deepen their on-the-ground knowledge. The Group also organises visits to industrial or operations sites in its various businesses. ENGEES, for its part, allows SUEZ to participate in open-door days to inform students about careers and opportunities within the Group.
The primary vocation of the École Nationale du Génie de l’Eau et de l’Environnement de Strasbourg is to provide basic and advanced training for engineers and managers working in hydraulics, water and waste services management, and sustainable regional development, including environmental protection. Backed by 3 research laboratories that it shares with the University of Strasbourg, France’s National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) and CEMAGREF, ENGEES accepts nearly 450 students in its basic programmes and offers 800 professional development internships.
