STEEM Graduate Degree: ZJU and l’X sign a cooperation agreement
Frank Pacard, Provost of École Polytechnique, welcomed Li Min, Director of the Office of International Relations of Zhejiang University, at l’X. This visit aimed at finalizing the cooperation agreement on Renewable Energies.
For the past few years, Zhejiang University (ZJU) and l’X have been working together to develop a strong partnership between the two universities. In 2012, École Polytechnique welcomed its first student from ZJU in its Ingénieur Polytechnicien program. In 2016, École Polytechnique, along with ENSTA ParisTech and Telecom ParisTech, signed a double Master’s agreement on Innovation and Entrepreneurship with Zhejiang University (ZJU).
In April 2018, ZJU and l’X signed a new cooperation agreement on Renewable Energies. This agreement aims at implementing a joint degree program and a double degree program in Renewable Energies: École Polytechnique will welcome students of the Institute of Polytechnic of ZJU in its Energy Environment: Science Technology and Management (STEEM) Graduate Degree program for one or two years.
The STEEM Graduate Degree is a high-level two-year Master’s program which offers an expertise on environmental issues and renewable energy sources. This program, fully taught in English, was designed to attract talented international students who want to tackle one of the main global challenges of the 21st century: climate change and renewable energies.
This new agreement reinforces the existing collaboration between the two universities. Both ZJU and l’X now intend to expand their partnership to other academic programs and research projects.
