Séminaires Energie et Société

Séminaires Energie et Société
Diplôme d'ingénieur de l'École et observatoire des sciences de la Terre (EOST)Parcours Diplôme d'ingénieur de l'EOST


Objectifs :
Les élèves de 3A doivent assister à au moins 4 séminaires durant le semestre 5, organisés soit par :

Les élèves de 3A valident leur présence en faisant signer une feuille de présence à chaque séminaire, en inscrivant également la date et le sujet de la conférence.


3A students must attend at least 4 seminars during semester 5, organized either by:

  • - The ITES laboratory, Institut Terre et Environnement de Strasbourg: https://ites.unistra.fr/agenda/seminaires
  • - The ITI program GEOT, Geosciences for the energy transition : https://geot.unistra.fr/en/education/geot-master-specialisation
  • - The FERED federation, Federation of Environmental Research and Sustainability: https://fered.unistra.fr/evenements/conferences

The students of 3A validate their presence by signing an attendance sheet at each seminar, by also writing the date and the subject of the conference.


School regulations

The curriculum includes three years of study: admissions, the organisation of studies, assessments, placements and vivas, graduation and international exchanges are all explained in the current school rules (pdf).

First and second year courses

First and second year courses

  • General modules: mechanics, geology, mathematics, IT, digital analysis, signal processing, inverse methods.
  • Geophysical methods: physics of the Earth, seismology, seismic modelling and imaging, geodesy, gravimetry, potential methods, geomagnetism, electromagnetism, rock physics and fracture, hydrology.
  • Practical work: geophysical measurements in the field (photo) and in the laboratory, geology field placements in the Alps.
  • Languages and economic and social sciences: English, modern language 2, economics, industrial property, management, sustainable development, ethics, quality, company health and safety
  • IT and research projects, shared with the first year of the master’s degree
  • Summer placements at a laboratory or company, with numerous opportunities abroad (international placement contact: Mike Heap)

Third year course

Students have a choice of 3 specialisations in the third year:

  • Geophysics applied to the exploration and production of raw materials: seismic and hydrodynamic characterisation of reservoirs, seismic processing and interpretation, potential methods.
  • Geophysics applied to geotechnics: geotechnics and the resistance of materials applied in civil engineering, geomechanics, hydrogeophysics, electromagnetic methods, earthquake.
  • Hydrogeology, hydrogeochemistry, hydrogeophysics (HydroG3).

Additional teaching:

  • Languages and economic and social sciences: English, energy economy, company strategy and structure.
  • Geophysics field camp in Alsace (photo).  Here are images of a normal fault in the Rhine Graben taken by students.
  • 6-month industry placement culminating in the writing of a dissertation and a viva before a jury in order to obtain the engineering degree. The placements are carried out all over the world.
