The Ecole Arts et Métiers campus of Rabat is born

The Ministry of Industry and Trade and Arts et Métiers France are joining forces to create the School of Arts and Crafts on the Rabat campus (EAMR) to train future leaders of responsible industries in Morocco.

EAMR is the culmination of a common vision and ambition, namely to meet the needs of companies in Morocco to support them in their transitions towards an industry of the future, responsible and sustainable, the two parties indicate in a joint press release.

“Thanks to high-level scientific and technical training, these future leaders, engineers and Bachelors/graduates will be able to build an efficient industry at the service of Moroccan society and responsible for the women and men who make it up and also for their environment,” the statement said.

EAMR will issue diplomas of excellence from the start of the 2023 academic year, driven by applied pedagogy that will put students into action in an evolving industrial-level learning factory in which digital technology will play a central role. EAMR teacher-researchers will develop academic research, partnership research and innovation activities in the service of increasing the skills and performance of the industry.

“We are very happy with this partnership with the Ecole Art et Métiers, which consolidates the development of national skills, the strengthening of research and the employability of young people. These are central components of our strategy, in line with the High Royal Instructions for industrial acceleration, the creation and development of high-performance ecosystems”, declared the Minister of Industry and Trade, Ryad Mezzour, quoted in the press release.

“We will not make the transition without new skills for young people to build sustainable infrastructure and smart cities. Arts et Métiers is very happy to see the culmination of this very ambitious co-development project with the Ministry of Industry and Commerce,” said Laurent Champaney, CEO of Arts et Métiers.

The climate emergency and societal expectations require rapid changes in technologies and know-how. EAMR intends to contribute to this by training the leaders of responsible industries who design and implement impactful technological and organizational innovations, essential for environmental and societal energy transitions.

For this, the school is committed to encouraging and supporting the industrial research of companies in Morocco and to welcoming industrial start-ups with the creation of an incubator within the campus.

Eventually, the EAMR will have 1,000 students, with promotions of around 200 engineers and 200 Professional License students per year.
