UTC : a successful model

UTC was established in 1972 as an experimental university for technological engineering. The educational objective for UTC consists in training engineers and future managers for the nation's various economic sectors.

This experiment aimed at bridging the gap between :

- the elite school system (Grandes Ecoles) and the standard universities
- the higher education institutions and industry

UTC's main missions are education, research and transfer of technology. It is well integrated within the European system of higher education and it has pursued, since its creation, an ambitious international policy. Its model has been duplicated in France in the cities of Troyes (UTT) and Belfort-Montbéliard (UTBM) and abroad in China (Shanghai) and Chile (Vina del Mar).

UTC interacts with society and industry by anticipating the research's requirements of companies and by facilitating the professional insertion of its students, thanks to its educational values based on students' autonomy and its interdisciplinary research.

A wide range of technical skills combined with a good scientific and general knowledge base in order to adapt oneself to every opportunity

A recipient of a DUT GEII is capable of analyzing and participating in the conception of systems and equipment using digital, analog and power electronic technology, electrical engineering, automatic operations, industrial data processing and networks. We learn in an open environment where we must be able to effectively communicate verbally and in writing, through various mediums and in a foreign language.

Subjects taught at the IUT:

In no particular order: Mathematics and Physics, Culture and Communication, English (preparation for the TOIEC), Programming, Analog Electronics and Signal Processing, Digital Electronics and Industrial Data Processing, Continuous Systems and Energy Conversion.

These subjects are divided into four teaching components:

  • UE1 (550 hrs): Science and Personal Development: Mathematics, Physics, Culture, Expression, Communication and English; this component includes learning about businesses
  • UE2 (450 hrs): Electrical Engineering
  • UE3 (450 hrs): Industrial and System Information Technology
  • UE4 (sandwich course): Professionnal Work

On top of this, there is an industrial work placement/internship of 10 to 12 weeks. This was conceived as a way to familiarize students with current international industrial realities and, along with supplementary modules, allows students to prepare their post-DUT paths.
