ECINE is the engineering school specializing in “Energy and Renewable Energy” at the International University of Rabat.

What makes ECINE a school not quite like the others?

The school currently offers two distinct specialties: on the one hand, the one called “Energy and Renewable Energy”, from the engineering cycle, which embodies its generalist approach to energy coupled with advanced expertise in renewable energies. On the other hand, another specialty offers a specific Master dedicated to the in-depth exploration of hydrogen-related technologies (Master H2E), thus offering students a double path of specialization.

The Energy and Renewable Energy specialty includes:

    • A two-year integrated preparatory cycle for very general training (mathematics, physics, chemistry, computer science, geology, EEA, mechanical engineering, etc.) followed by three years of engineering cycle.

    • The 3rd year is a year of training in energy with numerous practical work (Electrotechnics, automation, fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, materials and thermal); The 1st semester of the 4th year (semester 7) focuses on energy, semester 8 on renewable energies. The entire 4th year is structured around scientific and industrial calculation software (Fluent, CATIA, ABAQUS, Flex, Comsol, Matlab, MAPLE, Python, Thermoptim, SIMBAD, PVSys, Transys, etc.). The 1st semester of the 5th year (semester 9) is focused on the research and development project along with other courses focused mainly on the management, storage, audit of energy while semester 10 is reserved for the end-of-study project (engineering internship).

    Throughout the schooling, a significant effort is made to master the French and English languages ​​with a significant number of hours in the program. Numerous conferences around the engineering profession are also covered in the program as well as an introduction to economics and finance.

    Learning to work in a group takes place around 3 R&D projects in the 3rd, 4th and 5th year. Exploring the entreprise world takes place through 3 compulsory internships: a 4-week worker internship at the end of the 2nd year, a 5-week technician internship at the end of the 3rd year, an end-of-study engineering internship lasting 4 to 6 months.

    In fact, this training is unique in Morocco in particular due to two specificities:

    The impressive number of practical works, 40 installations including a steam turbine, a fuel cell, an infrared thermography installation, a Stirling engine, a wind tunnel equipped with a wind turbine and large solar installations, a photovoltaic farm of 325 kW, a 7 kW wind turbine and a 12 kW photovoltaic tracker.

    An international exchange, semester 8 is carried out at the University of Lorraine for the majority of the cohort. The best students have also the possibility of continuing the 4th and/or 5th year in France and in certain cases obtaining a double diploma from ENSEM or EEIGM two components of the University of Lorraine. The best students can also continue their 5th year at FST for a master 2 in mechanical-Energy.

    At the end of the ECINE program and under article 3 of decree No. 2.16.244 of July 22, 2016, the student obtains a degree recognized as equivalent to the state engineering degree.
