UTC, with its legal status as “a scientific, cultural and professional public establishment” was created in 1972 by the French Government as its first ‘experimental University of Technology’
With high international visibility and reputation, UTC has the mission to train students capable of understanding and controlling the multiple interactions between Technology and Mankind, of evolving in a global environment, managing innovative projects in both industrial sectors and research settings.
UTC’s research strategy calls for technological, partnership, pluridisciplinary, inter-cultural and, above all, conducive to innovative development. UTC is pursuing forms of technological research that answer societal questions generated by environmental issues that are becoming increasingly acute. The aim is to bring the university’s research policy closer to real-life socio-economic problems.
UTC produces graduates (engineers, Master’s degree, PhDs) capable of taking into account the interactions of technologies with Mankind and Society at large and of evolving in a world-scale competitive environment, with the aim of complying with sustainable development policies. The UTC lecturers, research scientists and engineers “lend meaning to innovation”, enabling the emergence of new axes underpinning this concept, introducing entrepreneurship principles in the heart of their concerns.
The UTC students’ union (better known as the ‘BDE’, or Bureau Des Etudiants)
The BUTC is open to all. In order to help you with research assignments and investigations during your studies, the Library is there with its collections and services. To find out more or how it works, please don't hesitate to talk with the librarians.
The UTC campus sites are located in various sectors of Compiegne and indeed have been integral parts of the City since the university began. To the extent that the student population represents 12% of all Compiegne inhabitants, they have radically changed the image of Compiegne. This has led to a dynamic, associative and cultural student life displaying a wide diversity. There are over 100 cultural and sports association registered with the Students’ Office (buzz-word BDE), some of which have extended their networks to have antennae in numerous other European countries.
Sports are not obligatory at UTC, but the practice is strongly encouraged. About 65% of the students indulge in at least one sport evert year they are at UTC.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, Studyportals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
My advice is to do all is possible. A lot of experiences done, a lot of really beautiful memories!
Positive: Small groupes for laboratory sessions. Teacher close to students.
I like the project based working style, but it is hard work during the semester!
