Teaching at IFP School in the programs Powertrain Engineering (PWT), Energie et Motorisations (MOT), Electrification de la Propulsion Automobile (EPA) continued.
Classworks in PWT and EPA continued, extended to MOT. The software used for such purpose was maintained.
Coordination of the control teaching unit for the program Powertrain Engineering continued. A new instructor was recruited for the Control Prerequisites lecture. A few lectures underwent an improvement process.
 IFP Training lectures continued.


Visiting Prof. Chris MANZIE, Univ. of Melbourne, Australia, hosted Sep.-Dec. 2012. One presentation and two papers issued.

Master's thesis of Matthias WÜEST, a student from ETH Zurich, launched.  His work is focused on real-time capable optimal eco-driving strategies, with a focus on both conventional and hybrid vehicles. Expected completion in Dec. 2013.

IFPEN representative to the Doctoral school Sciences et Technologies de l'Information des Télécommunications et des Systèmes (STITS).
