Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) 

The Energetics and Renewable Energy Engineering (EREE) program aims to equip students with a specific set of skills and competencies aligned with the mission. To achieve this goal, the program has defined three Educational Objectives, which are: 

PEO 1 - Professional behavior with integrity: Graduates will demonstrate good communication skills, interpersonal skills, and teamwork abilities with a strong understanding of professional and ethical responsibility. 

PEO 2 - Career development: Graduates will develop, update, and adapt their basic knowledge, exhibit critical thinking skills with a strong personality, and adopt an appropriate innovative and scientific approach. 

PEO 3 - Problem-solving and project assembly: Graduates will be able to formulate and analyze complex and multidisciplinary problems, with the ability to plan and carry out energy engineering projects as well as implement solutions that meet business needs. 

Student Outcomes (SOs)

In order to support the program objectives, the students are supposed to master seven (07) targeted abilities, namely:

SO1: an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics. 

SO2: an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors. 

SO3: an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences. 

SO4: an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts. 

SO5: an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives. 

SO6: an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.

SO7: an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies. 

Mapping (PEOs/SOs)

The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) are related to post-university work in engineering practice and are linked to Student Outcomes (SOs) as follows:

Application procedure

To initiate your application, follow these steps to create your file:

Step 1: Create a candidate account at the following link: https://candidature.uir.ac.ma

Step 2: Entering your personal and academic data

For current BACs:

  • Enter the French mark for the BAC Régional
  • Enter the Maths, Physics and English grades for the 1st semester For the BAC obtained:
  • Enter the French mark for the BAC Régional
  • Enter the national average obtained at the BAC

Online payment by credit card on the website, transfer or bank payment to CIH Bank with the UIR bank details:

Bank: CIH Bank
Bank identity statement: CIH Bank 230 810 594 293 822 101 460 075
Swift Code: CIHMMAMC
Beneficiary: International University of Rabat
NB: Once the transfer has been made, the candidate must scan the payment proof, mentioning their first and last name and send it to : comptable@uir.ac.ma

Admission decision

The admission process takes place in two stages:

1. File study:
Admission to the entrance exam is based on an overall assessment of each candidate's academic performance in mathematics, physics and languages ​​(French and English)
2. Written and oral assessment:
The evaluation process consists of two parts:
The first part is a written test which includes mathematics and physics. Four entrance exam sessions are scheduled throughout the year. The call for applications is announced on the university website (https://candidature.uir.ac.ma/), through promotional campaigns, social media, open days, live announcements and on the radio.

The second part of the assessment is an oral exam. The oral exam assesses the candidate's essential qualities, such as motivation, authenticity, initiative and curiosity. In addition, it also assesses the candidate's ability to communicate effectively in French and English. Final registration: Once these steps have been completed, the candidate will receive an email detailing the results of the validation interview, allowing them to move on to the final registration phase.

Transfer applications


Admission requierements

Admission is based on file study first, then an interview to check whether the candidate has the educational prerequisites.

  • Access to the 2nd year preparatory class is open to candidates who have completed the first year of a scientific preparatory class or the 1st year of the SMI course, or the 1st year of an accredited course of an engineering school, or the 1st year of the higher education cycle of an accredited scientific sector (L1).
