After the presentation of the training by the Director of ENSEA, the delegates of the two cohorts on behalf of all the students expressed their pride in participating in this training and showed the impact it will have in their professional careers. The hosts of the day encouraged the students to take seriously this very important training for the safeguard of the country’s road infrastructure.
The professional master’s degree in road infrastructure management is a diploma awarded jointly by the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Statistique et d’Economie Appliquée d’Abidjan (ENSEA) and the Institut National Polytechnique Félix Houphouët Boigny (INPHB). This training offer is part of the ATP Project (Abidjan Transport Project). Initiated by the Millennium Challenge Account Côte d’Ivoire, the ATP aims to increase the competitiveness of the city of Abidjan as a growth pole of the country by improving traffic fluidity and decongesting the central corridor of the city linking its port to the northern, eastern and western areas of the country. The objective of the 3ES Master’s program is to provide the knowledge and skills required by the new approach to infrastructure asset management, which combines the engineering elements associated with the design, preservation and rehabilitation of pavements with the economic logic to optimize investments while emphasizing environmental sustainability and the acceptance of service levels by the populations (social).
