Portrait de Christine Travers

Dear alumni,

The end of the year is approaching, bringing a degree of uncertainty once again, but also plenty to be happy about. The Fall semester has gone well at the School, with students and teams delighted to be finally back on site.

Thanks to the efforts of everyone involved, we have been awarded the “HappyAtSchool” label, with more than 91% of students from the previous intake recommending the School for its environment, its teaching and its links with industry, among other advantages.

Students on work/study programs from the 2021 intake, who have returned to the School this December, can now opt for an “à la carte” learning experience and select modules outside their usual field. We began trying to personalize programs a number of years ago and you can read about some of the new formats here.

This personalization is very important because it helps decompartmentalize the way the School operates and contributes to its “modernization”, much like the interactive and immersive learning capsules that are an increasing feature of our programs.

The latest innovations, described here, will take you to the heart of an electric or hybrid engine. Students are asking for more of them!

While we are on the subject of openness, the Petroleum Economics and Management program is now the Energy Technology Economics and Management program. The name change better reflects recent changes to the course content.

I wish you all a very happy festive season. Take care of yourselves and your loved ones.

I hope you enjoy reading this issue and I look forward to seeing you all again in 2022!
