- Management of Information Technologies (OMTI)
- Information Systems engineering (GSI)
- Quality and Safety (QSF)
- Automation (AII)
- Environment (GE)
- Nuclear : Technologies, Safety and Environment (NTSE)
- Nuclear : Systems and Technologies Applied to Nuclear reactors (STAR)
- Nuclear : Sustainable Nuclear Energy and Waste Management(SNEWM)- International master taught in English
Although it offers a fairly typical education for an engineering school, the EMN strives to give its graduate a practical, pragmatic approach to the technical and business skills it teaches. Manifestations of this philosophy include programs such as the Apprentissage Par l'Action ("Learning through interaction"), a case-based approach to sciences that places students in front of industry-inspired puzzles and develops students' analytic skills and intellectual curiosity. The EMN is also a partner of "La main à la pâte" ("hands in the dough"), an innovative initiative to teach sciences in primary courses supported by Georges Charpak, who won the Nobel Prize in physics in 1992.
Programs taught in English
EMN offers 4 Master of Science programs fully taught in English. The programs are:
- MOST (MSc in Management and Optimization of Supply Chains and Transport).
- PM3E (Master of Science in Project Management for Environnemental and Energy Engineering).
- ME3 joint masters (European joint Masters in Management and Engineering of Environment and Energy) in collaboration with 4 other partners (UPM Madrid, KTH Stockholm, BME Budapest and Queen’s University Belfast). This program has obtained the prestigious Erasmus Mundus label of the European Union.
- SNEAM (Master of Science in Sustainable Nuclear Energy - Applications and Management)
