visual: Initial training

In accordance with the new international system of higher education (BMD), the 2iE’s training curriculum allows students to register in 3rd year (semester 5 and 6) provided they hold an associate degree or a Technician certificate or an HND. 

After this « preparatory year», the qualified students receive a diploma of Bachelor’s degree in Water and Environmental Sciences to certify their knowledge in the areas of water and environment.   

Teaching program is provided by international faculty members (Burkina Faso, Senegal, Switzerland, France) coming from one of 2iE’s 24 partner universities. This diversity brings a high-level expertise in fundamental sciences. Besides, interventions from business professionals enable to anchor the learning into the reality of the business world’s needs. Close relationships with Water companies in 2iE’s countries members, the private sector (Areva, Sogea-Satom, Bera) and NGOs (ACF), make easier for students’ work-placement and job research.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of this training program, the student who holds the Bachelor’s degree in Water and Environmental Sciences (Three Years’ University Studies) will have:

  • Basic science, and applied computer science knowledge,
  • Basic technical knowledge
  • An approach to profession based on the teachings of applied techniques in the area of Hydraulic Infrastructures, Water and Sanitation, Electric and Energy Engineering and Civil Engineering.

Career Prospects 

At the end of this two-semester training program, the student who holds the Bachelor’s Degree in Water and Environmental Engineering has acquired a notable level in engineering applied to Hydraulic Infrastructures, Water and Sanitation, Electric and Energy Engineering and Civil Engineering. The student is then required to continue his/her education in Master of Engineering (Engineer 2iE).  

Entry Level and Admission Terms

The Bachelor in Water and Environmental Sciences is open to students who hold an university degree after a two years’ university studies, a Bachelor’s degree, or an HND.

Students are selected upon analysis of their application file, according to the level of their previous training and the relevance of their professional project.
