MS Occupational and technological risk management

The general context of the tightening of industrial risk management, with the implementation of PPRTs (Technological Risk Prevention Plan), as well as increased vigilance regarding the exposure of workers call for the training of specialists in the subject. Engineers must be able to deal with the technical and scientific aspects of the situations they face, while having expertise in the legal constraints and human factors. This is the whole point of this specialised master’s degree in Occupational and Technological Risk Management, accredited by the Conférence des Grandes Écoles.


At the end of this training, you will become executives specialising in health, safety and the environment. This master’s degree will give you the tools you need to meet people’s professional health and safety requirements and allow you to manage industrial risks while helping to achieve environmental conservation.



In all, 450 hours are devoted to theoretical and practical teaching and activities as part of a multidisciplinary scientific and technical project. The training is organised according to 3 main teaching units (TUs):

TU 1 Assessment and control of occupational and technological risks

  • Identification and modelling of technological and natural risks
  • Occupational risk assessment (accidents at work, occupational sickness)
  • Toxicology
  • Radiation protection

TU 2 Legal expertise in industrial risk

  • Corporate responsibility
  • ICPE insurance

TU 3 Risk management tools in industrial organisations

  • Risk analysis methodologies,
  • Environmental management
  • Human and Organisational Factors (HOF)

Scientific and technical project

To give engineering students a real grounding in the reality of occupational and technological risk management, a 140-hour tutored project must be undertaken jointly by professionals and teacher-researchers from IMT Nord Europe.



The training prepares students for professions as consultants, project managers or risk managers, providing expertise in:

  • ICPE regulations (installation classified for environmental protection);
  • environmental law;
  • the control and prevention of occupational risks;
  • crisis management;
  • technical risk assessment and modelling;
  • natural risk assessment;
  • the QHSE management system;
  • HOFs;
  • prevention of the risks of occupational accidents and occupational illness.


For this master’s degree, IMT Nord Europe has surrounded itself with high-level experts from the industrial world and speakers specialising in environmental law (direct collaboration with the Faculty of Law of the University of Artois)


At the end of the MS Occupational and Technological Risk management, graduates take high-level positions of responsibility in work relating to strategic analysis, study and design, project management and liaison with prevention organisations:

  • Technical director
  • Senior project manager
  • HSE manager
  • Risks and Environment Consultant


To be accepted onto the training, you must have:

  • an Engineering degree accredited by the CTI (5-year degree)
  • a University degree at Masters M2 level (5-year degree)
  • an M1 (4-year) or Masters (4-year) level university degree and three years of professional experience
  • a foreign degree of equivalent level (5-year)

Registration fees vary depending on your status: €6,500 including tax for young graduates and job seekers, €12,500 including tax for professionals, to which an application fee of €60 is added.

This is a French-taught post-master program. To apply you must demonstrate at least a B2 level in French.
