Certification Workshops (O5)

Course Director(s): Alexandre Govin


What is the multi-disciplinary project N°5 ?
The student will learn the basic culture and to use and manage tools and techniques made available to him in a given field. He will develop skills in qualitative and/or quantitative analysis in this field and make use of practical know-how.
  • 6 half days with experts and professionals from the sector. The usual time-slots are Tuesday morning, all day Wednesday, Thursday morning and all day Friday.
  • 1 or 2 animators for each module; teachers from the EMSE
  • Validation of the module will be by a “Pass” or “Fail” mode
Compulsory registration for a module of your choice.
You must classify all the seminars by order of priority. Registering for a seminar implies compulsory presence at all the sessions. The number of places is limited for each module (see seminar descriptions below).
Also note that certain seminars have particular times (Imperative, no absence authorisation will be granted; in the case of a major impossibility, choose another seminar).

In 2017 choice from 11 propositions

  • Risk/territory/crisis management ( 32 places- Animator: Alicja TARDY)
  • Comsol simulation software (32 places -Animator: Sylvain MARTIN)
  • Introduction to the observation and cartography of geological structures (15 places - Animator: Jacques MOUTTE)
  • Audiovisual production (10 places- Animator : Laurent Navarro)
  • Photoshop and mathematics / computational photography (15 places - Animator: Yann GAVET)
  • Design approaches (from needs analysis to industrialisation) ( 25 places - Animator: Loïc FAVERGEON)
  • Risk assessment and risk declaration document (60 places – Animator: Jean-Pierre POYET)
  • Open Innovation & Cooperation (12 places- Animator Julien Deseigne)
  • Introduction to industrial systems (15 places – Animator: Philippe Jaillon)
  • Work values and health impacts (20 places – Animator: Nadine DUBRUC
  • The fabric of public policy. Introduction to decision-making processes(20 places - Maxime André)

Risk / Territory / Crisis Management

At the end of the week students will have acquired knowledge and skills in the field of State organisation for major disasters, the organisation and aims of rescue plans existing at local, national and European levels, the roles of the actors involved in managing major accidents (such as the AZF disaster in Toulouse) and other types of crisis (including natural disasters).
Students choose their roles before the simulation and are divided into 3 teams. They communicate in real time between themselves and the professional animation team by means of computer tools.
A debriefing in the afternoon enables them to understand the stakes, the difficulties and the complexity of a crisis and the roles of all the actors.



During this workshop students will learn how to use COMSOL simulation software in simple and more complex cases, in static and dynamic mode. During the 7 half days there will be individual work to understand and use the software correctly. Training will be led by an expert from COMSOL France and a feedback of experiences using COMSOL will allow the students to fully understand the potential of this software programme.

Telemedicine, e-health and technologies: turning the tables


Economics and management


Computational photography


Design approaches (from needs analysis to industrialisation)

The training will be led by Vincent Badard, founder and director of the company, Diligences Composites. Diligences Composites is positioned in the sector of mechanical design research, combining good knowledge of energy professions, enabling a multi-technical approach to be adopted. The second main activity is the design and manufacture of mechanical parts.

Risk assessment and risk declaration document

The aim of the module is to discover issues of risk assessment associated with experimental equipment


Project management

The training course will be led by consultants from Accenture Consulting, who will introduce different tools to accompany the students and create common situations as close as possible to professional life.
