Presentation of the School

The School of Energy Engineering at UIR aims to support the development of Morocco's renewable energy sector and to meet the acute need for highly specialized and efficient engineers in this field.


One of a kind in Morocco, this engineering cycle integrates theoretical and experimental approaches over a 5-year course of study and in a complementary way.

Throughout the cycle, our students develop a solid scientific culture which is complemented by basic general education (languages, management, etc.). This makes them versatile and enables them to master different projects: the study, design, implementation and management of complex energy systems.

The educational approach of the School of Energy Engineering (ECINE) is dynamic and produces engineers capable of providing relevant solutions that are perfectly adapted to the energy needs of many sectors such as industry, construction, transport, agriculture, etc.

A unique education program in Morocco and in the region

The high-level curriculum delivered by the School of Energy Engineering (ECINE) combines the excellence of the University of Lorraine (France) programs with that of the UIR's academic and R&D teams, both of which are internationally recognized. 

This multi-disciplinary scientific program in mechanics, energy, electricity, electronics, automation and computer science, which includes a large number of practicums, enables future UIR engineers to design and implement major industrial projects in the field of Renewable Energies.


ECINE's workshop-laboratories are the ultimate venues for interdisciplinary research. Indeed, they make it possible to pool resources for educational and research purposes and the dissemination of expertise:

  • Wind tunnel workshop

  • Mechanical workshop: Mouton de Charpy pendulum;

  • Mechanical workshop: Numerical control machining center;

  • Thermal machine workshop: Steam turbine;

  • Renewable energies workshop: Indoor wind turbine, Indoor photovoltaic panels; Biodigester for methanization (Biomass); Hydrogen battery, etc... 

The practical training rooms provide students with a hands-on learning environment in which theoretical knowledge can be tested and applied:

  • Electronic and automatic lab

  • Thermal and Fluid Mechanics Lab

  • Electrical Engineering Lab.

  • Mechanics and Materials Lab

Located on the UIR campus, a certain number of large facilities are used to carry out end-of-study projects and R&D work by professors and researchers:

  • The photovoltaic towing vehicle

  • The wind turbine

  • The photovoltaic solar farm
