Currently, environmental protection and sustainability within the chemical processing and energy industries are of major concerns. The ME3 programme provides a solid basis in chemical and environmental engineering and allows students to address the most pressing environmental problems facing today's world. ME3 students study a diverse range of environmental topics including: Environmental Sustainability Management, Drinking and Waste Water Treatment, Environmental Process Engineering, and Process Simulation and Modelling.

At IMT Atlantique Nantes a general overview of all up to date eco-technologies is presented. IMT Atlantique Nantes is intended to form generalist engineers, thus the environment semester covers a wide range of technologies and enable students to master basic concepts of many processes applied to environment engineering and energy systems (e.g. incineration plants from the furnace up to the treatment of flue gas).

Details on the syllabus are presented below.
