Bretons from abroad


Created in 1992, EME (Ecole des Métiers de l’Environnement) is specialized in Sustainable Development and Environment. It is a non-profit association, recognized by the State as a Private Higher Education Institution of General Interest (EESPIG). The EME joined the Institut Polytechnique UniLaSalle in 2018.

It trains Engineers in Environmental Engineering at Master level. It also offers:

  • a Master in Circular Economics, which enables students to understand and implement the tools of Industrial Ecology and Eco-design.
  • a Master of Science in Sustainable Management & Eco Innovation in cooperation with Rennes School of Business
  • a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Coordination.

It has a Research and Engineering pole, “Cyclann”, connected to industries and research laboratories on environmental studies of international scope.

UniLaSalle Rennes – EME is entitled to receive students with scholarships from higher education in the Engineering Cycle.

Located on the Ker Lann Campus (, the School is at the center of a scientific and technological pole just a few minutes from the university city of Rennes.

Supported by the Management and supervised by a Sustainable Development Officer, the teachers, staff and students are committed to the School’s Agenda 21 in order to set an example in terms of Sustainable Development and Social Responsibility.

Together with its many partner companies, the School is working towards the development of a greener and more responsible economy, constituting a strong source of employment for the students it trains. As part of the ERASMUS+ program, students have the opportunity to spend one or more semesters abroad on academic exchanges with one of the EME’s partner institutions, thus enabling them to gain a better understanding of the challenges of environmental professions on an international scale and to develop their language skills.

The EME is also a place for exchanges. Numerous events are organized every year to raise awareness of the population, companies and all the actors in the area about sustainable development and the School’s projects: conferences, workshops and technical days are regularly held within the school itself. EME students are above all committed students. In addition to solidarity student associations such as Humanit’EME, or Eco-Challenge, they also meet around the School’s Agenda 21 and are at the origin of meaningful projects such as COP TROTTER, mobilized around COP and MedCop.

The EME has 320 to 350 students per year, 75% of whom are studying Environmental Engineering and 22% are studying for a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Coordination.

There is no student association focused on welcoming international students yet.

The alumni association is EME alumni.
