International Master

MSc Advanced Design and Management of Durable Constructions

With technological developments and growing concerns about sustainability, the landscape of the construction industry is undergoing a major transformation. Companies can no longer ignore the impact of their activities on the environment, and the integration of sustainable development is becoming an unavoidable priority. Today, more than ever, it is imperative that companies embrace an innovative and responsible approach to construction, rethinking not only how they build, but also how they shape the future of the sector.

In response to these challenges, IMT Nord Europe has created the Master in ADVANCED DESIGN AND MANAGEMENT OF DURABLE CONSTRUCTIONS (ADMODC). The mission of this program is to train civil engineering professionals capable of rethinking construction by integrating sustainable practices. By focusing on the use of innovative, bio-based and sustainable materials, the program aims to minimize the environmental impact while maximizing the efficiency of construction projects.

In addition, your management and project management skills will be developed during a semester at Institut Mines-Télécom Business School, our academic partner.
