Teaching Sustainable Environment
The teaching activities of the Sustainable Environment team are closely linked to its research activities and its platforms and laboratories. They are carried out by 4 teacher-researchers (Blanche Collin, Catherine Keller, Nicolas Roche and Danielle Slomberg)1 ATER and several engineers and researchers in the team who develop innovative pedagogical approaches.
The team is involved in the following educational streams :
- Licence mention SVT (course EARTH, ENVIPOM and H&E)
- a BUT Chemical Engineering - Process Engineering (GCGP)
- CMI Geology of resources and sustainable development
- Master Environmental Management (MAEVA course)
- Master Marine Science (OBEM purpose)
The courses taught cover environmental issues, biogeochemical cycles, biogeochemistry of contaminants, soil sciences, remediation of polluted sites and soils, environmental nanotechnologies, water chemistry, circular economy, process engineering, water treatment methods, ecotoxicity and methods of analysis and characterisation of environmental solutions and matrices (soils, plants, waste).
Topics are taught in the form of lectures but also during fieldwork, practical work in our laboratories and visits to industrial sites.
The team hosts trainees of all levels (BUT, Licence, Master M1 & M2, Engineering schools, ...) on various subjects (see some examples of internship offers).
Some key actions
To spread knowledge at all levels, workshops are run at the Arbois Science Village during Fête de la Science. The NAMAC game and a video series about nanoparticles called "Did You Know? on nanoparticlesoffers an opportunity for the familiarization with scales of size. Trainees from middle schools and high schools are also hosted and tutored projects are supervised(BCPST prep school).
