Prerequisites for enrolment
Bac +4



Through this Master's Degree students will acquire excellent skills in the management of electrical energy. Based on electrical engineering courses, students will be able to design, develop and improve complex electrical systems (innovative machine, advanced power electronics, smart grid and multi-source systems), and to prepare PhD.

By focusing on the management of Electrical Energy the Master’s program covers various topics related to Electrical engineering: advanced modeling of electromagnetic devices, Control management of electrical energy. The field of applications concerns more particularly energy conversion, transportation (boats, aircrafts, automotive…), sustainable development (wind and marine energy and their integration in the network) and multi-source systems.

  • to be able to design innovative solutions for the electrical integration of renewable energies
  • to integrate electrical efficiency and eco-conception rules during the design of electrical systems
  • to model a multiphysics system including sensing electrical systems and control process
  • to be able to design optimal electrical energy management systems


The program mainly aims at international students and is taught in English. A good command of the English language is required (B2 score as defined by the Council of Europe). Introductions to French language and European culture are provided locally at Polytech Nantes.
