UTC's Doctoral School (ED)

The doc­to­ral school is simul­ta­neous­ly an admi­nis­tra­tive enti­ty, a place of reflec­tion on PhD stu­dies and trai­ning and a point of contact-exchange area.

Organization of UTC's PhD studies

The doc­to­rate is a pro­fes­sio­nal expe­rience which consists of 3 years of research work in a uni­ver­si­ty (HE) labo­ra­to­ry, or a large research orga­ni­za­tion or a research-deve­lop­ment-inno­va­tion centre within a com­pa­ny. At the end of these three years, a pre­sen­ta­tion of the work is made before a jury which eva­luates and vali­dates this expe­rience, gran­ting the doc­to­ral diplo­ma of the Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­no­lo­gy of Compiègne.

This diplo­ma vali­dates the acqui­si­tion of scien­ti­fic trai­ning and, more broad­ly, of pro­fes­sio­nal skills and indi­vi­dual and col­lec­tive know-how of a very high level. This diplo­ma the­re­fore pre­pares stu­dents for careers in research and tea­ching in public or pri­vate orga­ni­za­tions, for senior civil ser­vice mis­sions or for inno­va­tion careers in the entre­pre­neu­rial world.

During their pro­fes­sio­nal career, doc­to­ral stu­dents are moni­to­red by the doc­to­ral school (ED) team. UTC-ED is at the same time an admi­nis­tra­tive enti­ty, a place of reflec­tion on doc­to­ral trai­ning and a point of contact, lis­te­ning and exchange. The main role of UTC-ED is to gua­ran­tee the highest qua­li­ty of trai­ning in research, through research and inno­va­tion aiming at pre­pa­ring reliable pro­fes­sio­nals able to explain and valo­rise their skills and com­pe­tence to their future interlocutors/employers. At the UTC, the doc­to­ral super­vi­sion can be ensu­red by one, two or even three the­sis direc­tors, within a research unit reco­gni­sed by the French Minis­try of Research. Thus, the ED is atten­tive to the evo­lu­tion of the "pro­fes­sio­nal" path of each PhD student, inclu­ding in par­ti­cu­lar the qua­li­ty of the pro­fes­sio­nal rela­tions in terms of mutual res­pect, sha­red well-being as well as the inser­tion within the unit of affiliation.

The UTC doc­to­ral school was crea­ted in 1985, it thus bene­fits from a long expe­rience in terms of pro­fes­sio­nal sup­port at the PhD level and conti­nues to evolve its struc­tures and its offer, which ear­ned it a very good rating throu­ghout these years. In addi­tion, it is now a com­ponent of the Sor­bonne Uni­ver­si­ty Doc­to­ral College.

PhD level training in and through research for a personalised professional project

Since its crea­tion, UTC has devo­ted an impor­tant part of its acti­vi­ties to the trai­ning to and through research. The ambi­tion of the UTC Doc­to­ral School is to inte­grate the pro­fes­sio­na­lism requi­red by our eco­no­mic part­ners in the very heart of aca­de­mic research with its rigour and crea­ti­vi­ty, so that the UTC doc­to­ral student is able to think of an indus­trial or aca­de­mic career in the terms of the research he/she has conducted.

Teaching, consulting and business experience

Each UTC PhD student has the pos­si­bi­li­ty, during his/her the­sis, to teach accor­ding to the terms and condi­tions spe­ci­fic to his/her sta­tus (vaca­tions if a grant hol­der or pri­vate employee sub­ject to the agree­ment of his/her employer, as a rider to the doc­to­ral contract "1/6th tea­ching"), after agree­ment of his/her the­sis director(s). It is also pos­sible to take part in a com­pa­ny consul­tan­cy pro­ject with one's the­sis director(s).

The corporate world, a research partnership

The links of UTC with the socio-eco­no­mic world are also expres­sed through the theses car­ried out within the fra­me­work of a direct part­ner­ship research pro­ject or through the CIFRE (Conven­tion indus­trielle de for­ma­tion par la recherche) scheme mana­ged by the ANRT (Asso­cia­tion natio­nale de la recherche tech­nique) on behalf of the Minis­try of Research.

The CIFRE schemes enable com­pa­nies to recruit young people with 5 years of higher edu­ca­tion (Bac + 5) whose research and deve­lop­ment work will lead to a doc­to­ral the­sis, and involve three part­ners: a com­pa­ny, a young gra­duate and a labo­ra­to­ry.

The French national network of doctoral schools in engineering sciences

The UTC Doc­to­ral School is a mem­ber of the French Natio­nal Net­work of Doc­to­ral Schools in Engi­nee­ring Sciences (REDOC SPI), which com­prises the mem­ber­ship of 33 doc­to­ral schools and some 8000 PhD students.
