Sustainable development through hydropower, photovoltaics, wind power, electricity grids. The Energy and Environmental Engineering degree programme has set itself the objective of training future engineers in the production, transport and management of environmentally friendly electrical energy. At the end of the programme they will have attained the Bachelor of Science HES-SO in Energy and Environmental Engineering, together with all the practical skills that go with it.
Future engineers can rely on the skills in hydropower, photovoltaics and wind power of the teaching staff, who divide their time between teaching and research. Based in Sion, the Energy and Environmental Engineering degree programme and the associated research institute combine their resources to provide the best possible training for future professionals, and offer their skills to SMEs and larger businesses in Valais and the rest of Switzerland.
