International student - Environmental and geological sciences

Welcome to the Geosciences Engineering School ENSEGID of Bordeaux INP providing courses at Master level.

We aim to educate students in environmental sciences and geological sciences for those who want to play a role in the energy transition, remediation of contaminated sites, geological reservoirs and risks, water ressources, georessource and essential knowledge for building a climate-resilient and low-carbon world.

 Welcome International student for Environmental and geological sciences, natural resources,geosciences,geothermal energy,geological storage, ecology, geology, hydrology, groundwater, sustainable development, environmental remediation, modeling, soil contamination, natural hazards


Since 2011, ENSEGID - Bordeaux INP has trained multi-skilled engineers in the fields of exploration, exploitation and balanced management of natural ressources, with a sustainable development approach. The ENSEGID programme covers all the multidisciplinary aspects necessary for environmental management issues, but what sets it apart is its focus on professional internships, numerous field classes, and applied project-based learning

ENSEGID our aim is to train engaged, socially-responsible engineers who are prepared to take on the challenges of the 21st century: energy resources, water and environmental management. To do so, ENSEGID offers high-level training with a professional focus and an international outlook. It is also draws on basic and applied research activities to respond to the specific needs of companies, design offices and local authorities. The training programme is structured around multidisciplinary and specialised courses to provide future engineers with in-depth knowledge of the natural environment and mastery of the scientific and technical tools necessary for their future careers.

When you choose ENSEGID, you are choosing professional success at a dynamic, close-knit engineering school.

" The courses at ENSEGID are characterized by its highly practical component. For every theoretical unit there are usually corresponding practical courses which are held in small study groups. There exists a personal connection and exchange between teachers and students. Field trips and study trips lasting up to two weeks deliver insight into the geological field work. "
