To ensure the success of the E2S project, a specific governance, distinct from those of the consortium institutions, will be created.
The project will be run by the E2S Executive Director, proposed by the President of UPPA and designated by the Board of Trustees.
The governing bodies will be the following:
UPPA will be reorgansed by grouping the ten existing components into three Colleges. The Colleges will represent a new level of governance and decision-making in terms of teaching, research and innovation. The following Colleges will be created:
Teaching and research will be structured across two levels, Undergraduate and Graduate studies. Each College will be composed of two multi-disciplinary Departments, one for Undergraduate Studies, one for Graduate Studies.
For “Undergraduate Studies”, the Department will be associated with the Institutes of Technology. The objective at this level is for the University to fulfill its public service mission by meeting the higher education needs of the surrounding areas through the recruitment of local students.
The “Graduate Studies” Department will be associated with the engineering schools, the Institute of Business Management, the research units, the doctoral schools and the instrumentation platform.. Here priority is given to high-recognition degrees with national and international recruitment.
Associate professors and professors will be hired by the Colleges and expected to teach at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.
