Since January 2018, human and social science research work has been undertaken on how to train engineers who can adapt to meet new societal and especially environmental challenges.
The research has been organized into 5 major stages :
- Reflection/Theoretical analysis on the role of the engineer today and tomorrow
- Survey and analysis of expectations in terms of engineer training
- Investigation into the practices in each country
Identification of the obstacles, driving forces and dynamics
Collaborative construction of ways of improvement
On Monday 2 December, a round table and workshops were held during an update session at ENSTA Bretagne which enabled the participants to share their points of view on the subject and to refine the recommendations resulting from the first studies.
Des représentants d'entreprises étaient présents pour apporter leur regard sur ces problématiques et proposer des pistes de réflexion :
Let the recommended solutions remain simple and pragmatic. We do not need to seek perfection but look for simple, realistic and practicable stages. However, bear in mind the major mid-term challenges to find viable long-term solutions.
Financed by the French Ministry for Foreign Affairs, The Algerian Ministry for Higher Education and Research, the Moroccan Ministry for Higher Education and Research, the Tunisian Ministry for Higher Education and Research, the RIIME Project involves ENSTA Bretagne’s partners, the Cread Algiers, the ENSEM Casablanca, the ENI Sfax and the University of Sfax.
