Established in 1992, the École des Métiers de l’Environnement, known in English as the School of Environmental Management and Engineering (EME Unilasalle), specializes in environmental engineering and sustainable development. EME Unilasalle is a non-profit association that trains students in the areas of environmental science, engineering and management. It prepares engineering students for a Masters degree in Ingénieurs en Génie Industriel de l’Environnement, which is recognized by the French government and by the CTI. It also offers a Bachelor Degree in Environmental Management. EME Unilasalle is recognized as a member of the Conférence des Grandes Ecoles.
EME Unilasalle has a research department named CYCLANN that works in conjunction with local and regional industries and research laboratories on environmental projects with a global perspective. Researchers at EME Unilasalle also teach courses allowing students access to the latest research.
Situated on the Campus of Ker Lann (www.campuskerlann.com), EME Unilasalle is at the center of a rich science and technology campus, and is only a few minutes from the city of Rennes. EME Unilasalle heavily integrates sustainable development into all its activities. Professors, staff, and students are invested in the school’s Agenda 21 policy, which sets the example of sustainable development and social responsibility.
Many events are organized at EME Unilasalle each year to spread awareness of sustainable development to the public, enterprises, etc. EME Unilasalle research projects, conferences, workshops, and technical sessions are regularly presented in the school. Students at EME Unilasalle are constantly engaged in solving environmental issues through student associations such as Afrik’Action, Eco-Challenge, or InterSolidaires. EME Unilasalle students strive to meet the goals of Agenda 21 and are in charge of meaningful projects like the Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development project completed in June 2012, and COP TROTTERS in 2016.
