Logos IFP School et MOOC


Following the great success of the second edition at the end of 2015 – More than 5000 people signed up, with a satisfaction rate of 88% - IFP School is now launching the 3rdMOOC on sustainable mobility.

The program will run for a 4 week period, starting from 20 February 2017!

Participants will tackle a number of subjects, such as:

  • how engines work, 
  • how fuels are made, their specifications, 
  • how pollutants are formed and pollutant after-treatment,  
  • the technologies designed to reduce consumption and emission, 
  • and, finally, alternative solutions.


By offering a broad range of learning supports (videos, interactive quizzes, discussion forums), a mentor system and, most of all, a serious game, this 3rd MOOC retains all the hallmarks that made the previous two such a resounding success. With one new addition: a virtual tour of an engine test bench, a fun activity that will help participants understand the complex engine testing environment.

If you are a student or a motor vehicle industry professional and you’re interested in the challenges related to mobility, sign up today on:
