IVE MS - Engineering Electric Vehicles

(Co-accreditation with the National School of Advanced Techniques, Mines ParisTech and Ecole des Ponts ParisTech)

Echoing a general willingness of industry and government to promote more attention to the environment and more energy efficient mobility, the Master in Engineering Electric Vehicles (IVE) is offered jointly by four engineering schools of ParisTech partnership with Renault, with the support of the EDF Group and professional groups of the automobile.

This innovative technology training and professionalizing, in tune with the expectations of the automotive future, aims to promote and deepen the transfer of technologies to traditional combustion vehicles to electric vehicles.

Advantages of the program

This training is the first Specialized Master in France that addresses this issue. It responds to a strong business need for a genuine demand exists today to recruit experts in engineering electric vehicles.


To train specialists for the design of future vehicles by offering knowledge and methods in the following three areas technologies:

  • The first area rather proceeds from the informational: necessary changes in human behavior, but also use of new information technology to provide a virtual autonomy compensate the actual loss caused by the use of less efficient than energy storage in electric form (of fossil types).
  • The second area is related to electrical systems. The objective is to bring knowledge of technology currently available to perform various electrical functions ensuring optimal storage and management of energy flows in hybrid or pure electric vehicle.
  • The third area of ​​work concerns the impact of this mutation on traditional automotive trades. The objective is to review the methods of design and sizing of the vehicle architecture in the disciplines of mechanics, materials, acoustics, and mechatronics.

Skills acquired

This Specialized Master offers vocational skills extended to:

  • Identify contracts associated with the transition to electrification of autonomous vehicles;
  • Collect relevant scientific data and how to select the necessary technical information to the definition of a new product as part of an innovation strategy of a company transport;
  • Carry out design;
  • Carry out production and / or construction;
  • Conduct technical trials.


The training lasts one academic year from late September to the end of September of the following year.
