The renewable energy sector is experiencing strong growth, creating a significant need for new skills. This certification program of the École Polytechnique Executive Education, in partnership with HEC Paris and the University Mohammed VI Polytechnic (UM6P), aims to develop a dual competence in engineering and entrepreneurship by addressing the specificities of the Moroccan and more widely African markets.

This program aims at developing dual expertise in both engineering and entrepreneurship. It allows for an increase in the skills of players and future leaders in the energy market in the energy transition context.
