Sustainable mobility: technical and environmental challenges for the automotive sector


IFP School is launching the third edition of a  Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) : a free course on the subject of “Sustainable Mobility”.

This subject will be addressed from many different perspectives such as the economic context and regulations, fuel specifications and production in the refining industry, engines and post-treatment systems design, vehicles hybridization, biofuels, mobility of tomorrow. The evaluation will include a “serious game” designed as a video game: you will optimize the fuel production in a refinery and also the engine settings to reduce fuel consumption and pollutant emissions. As an applied graduate school, we promote the “learning by doing”

The first edition was awarded with an eLearning Excellence Award.

IFP School invites you to follow this MOOC which is a demonstration of the teaching approach and the technical quality of the courses delivered at IFP School.

Registrations are open (free of charge).  The courses will begin on February 20th 2017.

How it works?

Every Monday, IFP School will publish a module covering a specific theme. Each chapter is illustrated by an 8’minute video. Under certain videos (Weeks 2 and 4) you will find additional resources which will allow you to learn more about the concept presented in the video.

Assessment & Achievement Certificate

A the end of each module, you will be assigned homework such as quizzes or serious games. Under each homework, the minimum required score is indicated.

Regarding the quizzes, you may attempt them two times. The higher of the two scores will be entered as your grade.

Each module accounts for the global grade in a variable proportion. Your total score will be based on 100%.

You must earn at least 60% of the total points to receive an Certificate of Achievement.


This course is essentially an introduction to techniques so there is no need to have an engineering background. We do, however, see this course as being more beneficial to those having at least two year of college education.
