A word from the director
Telecom Bretagne is a graduate engineering school, which puts active
pedagogy at the heart of its educational practices, and student projects are
However, the Trek Telecom project opens up a completely new dimension.
Students will become not only the actors, but also the originators of their
project : a three-week tour through Europe, enabling them to test new forms of
learning using information technologies.
Every phase of the project, the logistic preparation, distance learning, company visits, inquiries into
practices related to sustainable development and publicizing the key steps of this venture, will
provide opportunities to implement the diverse aspects of their many talents.
I am certain that the students' skills and motivation will allow them to undertake their
adventure successfully. They will come back enriched from this unique experience, which will be a
tremendous asset when beginning their professional careers.
They will show that the engineering profession has a beautiful future ahead of it and that it can help to
ﬁnd reasonable solutions to the innumerable problems that sustainable development poses, in these
three dimensions : environmental, economic and social.

We intend to create a website which will give information about renewable energies in eco-construction.
In order to do so, we are going to travel around Europe looking for :
• solutions concerning sustainable housing
• data concerning Information Technologies and their use for the sustainable house of
We aim to produce, at the end of our project, a case study of a particular house : the Breton house.
Moreover, we would like to study how these different solutions could be affordable, and the energy and
economical costs involved.
Therefore, our website will outline the different techniques involved in sustainable construction and
present the passive house and the renovation possibilities for a Breton house.
We are a group of six engineering students, of three different nationalities, all motivated by this
adventure and by the project, and all aware of the importance of sustainable development and it’s
